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 Society2. Power System Layout3. Per Unit System4. Power-flow Analysis5. Fault Analysis6. Renewable Energy (Wind, Solar & Hydro generation) sustainability and environmental impact.7. Substation Layout & Earthing8. Transformers9. Synchronous Machines
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 system2. Understand the different types of generation and storage technologies3. Perform calculations on the potential of renewable power generation4. 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 flow6. Perform balanced fault calculations7. Perform transient stability analysis using equal area criteria8. Understand and perform calculations for electrical machines (generators, transformers and motors)9. Perform calculations for earth grids10. Understand Substation Layout.
