EJ1200 Electric Power Systems 6.0 credits

Eleffektsystem

The course deals with theory, methods, and components for systems where conversion and transmission of electric power are the main objectives. Examples of such systems are speed-controlled drives for electric vehicles and industrial robots, and wind power plants interacting with the utility grid.

On completion of the course, the student should:

  • be able to describe the meaning of active, reactive and apparent power.
  • be able to calculate mean values, peak values, rms-values, and harmonics.
  • be able to analyse three-phase systems by means of single phase equivalent circuits, phasor diagrams and the jw-method.
  • be able to describe different types of nodes in an electric power system.
  • be able to make calculations on magnetic circuits.
  • be able to calculate magnetic forces by means of the magnetic force law, virtual work and Maxwell's tensions.
  • be able to describe rotating magnetic fields.
  • be able to describe the function of the transformer, transmission lines, the synchronous machine, one- and three-phase power electronic converters.

Examination and completion

Grading scale *

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Examination *

  • LABD - Laboratory work, 0.5 credits, Grading scale: P, F
  • LABE - Laboratory work, 0.5 credits, Grading scale: P, F
  • LABF - Laboratory work, 0.5 credits, Grading scale: P, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

In agreement with KTH's coordinator for disabilities, it is the examiner who decides to adapt an examination for students in possession of a valid medical certificate.. The examiner may permit other examination formats at the re-examination of individual students.
