Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

This course covers power system  stability and control. Based on different mathematical models various power system instabilities are analyzed. Different methods will be applied to assess power system stability after disturbances. Different technical solutions will also be discussed and presented to improve power system stability. In the second part of the course, the PhD student must propose a final project in which an in-depth analysis and study of power system stability and control shall be performed.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student shall be able to
1. create mathematical models to perform an in-depth analysis and study of power system stability and control,
2. apply different methods to assess power system stability,
3. derive and apply different control algorithms to improve power system stability and damping,
4. describe and analyse effect of integration of renewable energy on power system dynamics and stability,
5. both orally and in writing present and discuss obtained results.
