Students will familiarise themselves with the operation and behaviour of electrical power systems. The course introduces participants to the physical and electrical properties of equipment used in power systems, and the analytical techniques used in their planning, operation and evaluation. The course will provide students with the opportunity to develop a range of skills necessary to analyse, plan, design and operate the various equipment used in power systems.
Availability2017 Course Timetables
- Semester 1 - 2017
- Trimester 3 - 2017 (Singapore)
On successful completion of the course students will be able to:
1. Develop a familiarisation with the equipment used in power systems, and knowledge of the physical and electrical properties of this equipment.
2. Develop the analytical skills used in the planning, design, operation and evaluation of power systems, and understand the limitations of each analysis tool learned.
3. Develop computer based simulation skills for power system analysis.
4. Develop a broad understanding of issues associated with power systems operation, including technical (e.g reliability and redundancy) and non-technical (e.g market factors).
The course material will be drawn from the following topic areas:
- Review of fundamental knowledge
- Steady state system analysis
- Voltage control
- Fault studies
- Frequency control in power systems
- Transient and dynamic stability
- Protection systems
- Power quality and harmonic distortion
- Transmission systems
- Energy economics
