This subject provides an insight into the basic elements of electrical power transmission and distribution systems such as generators, transmission and distribution lines, and loads. It offers analytical tools for analysis of basic operations of these systems. Problems related to power flow and use of numerical algorithms such Gauss-Siedel, Newton-Raphson will be discussed. Fault calculation and analysis, symmetrical components and protection systems: Analytical methods for solving symmetrical (balanced) faults, protection systems will be covered in details. Finally power system transient and voltage stability as well primary control systems will be analysed.
Comprehensive analysis of single and three-phase AC power circuits, which includes calculations of real, reactive and complex powers, and power factor correction.
Calculation of active and reactive power transfer between buses, maximum power transfer, static stability limit. Power circle construction and analysis.
Synchronous generator models, voltage stability, transient stability, primary control devices (Governor and Exciter)
Load flow calculations, numerical methods analysis and, Gauss method, Gauss-Seidel method, Newton-Raphson method and simplified approximate method.
Computer simulation packages, Matlab/Simulink (SimPower) and Power World.
