EG2120 FACTS and HVDC in Electric Power Systems 7.5 credits
FACTS och HVDC i elkraftsystem
The course starts with a review of static and dynamic issues in power systems. Then FACTS and HVDC are presented and it is shown how these components may be a technical solution to the described issues. It will be discussed in the course how FACTS and HVDC are designed and also what functions they have. Basic mathematical models and control strategies are presented and used to analyze the impact of theses components on power system stability.
