EG2140 Computer Applications and Machine Learning in Electric Power Systems 7.5 credits

The course provides a good foundation in the development of algorithms to solve a variety of problems in electric power systems based on both physical modeling and data-based methods. The course is divided into three modules, the first two deal with physical and data-based methods for system-wide analysis, and a third module deals with the analysis of time series data Common to all modules is the use of python and a nuof code libraries for the analysis of electric power systems from different perspectives.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course gives a good basis in development of algorithms to solve different types of problems in electric power system based on both physical modelling and data-based methods. The course is divided into three modules, and the use of the programming language Python and a set of code libraries for the analysis of electric power system is common to all modules. The first module is based on a physical modelling perspective and the assignment is to analyse the topology of an electric power system and develop a state estimator. Module two extends the challenge, but here the method is instead data-based, and methods in machine learning such as decision trees, k-means and kNN be introduced. The third and final module includes analysis of time series with measured values for the analysis of production and consumption data in electric power system where the methods from module two are supplemented by additional contents adapted for the analysis of time series.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to

  • develop and implement algorithms for physical modelling, static analysis of electric power system and state estimation in electric power system
  • describe preconditions and advantages and disadvantages of physical and data-based methods for static analysis of electric power system
  • develop and implement data-based algorithms for identification of static states in electric power system
  • develop and implement data-based algorithms for time series analysis of measured values in electric power system

in order to optimise operation and planning of electric power system with high penetration of renewable power production with maintained high reliability.
