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.
Not to count for credit with ELEC4110, ELEC4130 or ELEC4140

|Objectives||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).
