Description

The electric power systems course encompasses the concerns of bulk electrical energy, its production or generation, the bulk transmission, local area distribution and final consumption (the load) as needed by industry, commerce and households. These topics from the component level and up through the system as a whole. Analysis techniques for power systems under both steady-state and transient conditions are developed. Electrical machine level concepts are also covered, including generators, transformers and motors.

Topics covered include:
1. Electricity and Society
2. Power System Layout
3. Per Unit System
4. Power-flow Analysis
5. Fault Analysis
6. Renewable Energy (Wind, Solar & Hydro generation) sustainability and environmental impact.
7. Substation Layout & Earthing
8. Transformers
9. Synchronous Machines

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Understand the laws and concepts governing the behaviour of an interconnected electrical power system
2. Understand the different types of generation and storage technologies
3. Perform calculations on the potential of renewable power generation
4. Understand the past and present structure of the electrical power system and be familiar with the wholesale electricity market (including societal aspects that have influenced the development).
5. Perform Power-flow analysis and understand the way different components can affect the power flow
6. Perform balanced fault calculations
7. Perform transient stability analysis using equal area criteria
8. Understand and perform calculations for electrical machines (generators, transformers and motors)
9. Perform calculations for earth grids
10. Understand Substation Layout.
