The aim of this subject is to understand the fundamental concepts and basic theory involved in modelling and analysis of the various components that comprise power systems. Power systems involve the generation, conversion, transmission and distribution of electricity via the use of specific devices, such as transformers, generators and motors. It is expected that at the end of this subject the student will have developed a sound understanding of the functionality and characteristics in terms of physical concepts and mathematical models of each of the covered components and relate them to the real life operation of power systems, such as a country’s power grid or smaller power systems that connect to the grid.
INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES ( ILO's)
It is expected that on completing this subject the students should be able to:
Hurdle requirement: Students must pass the end of semester written exam to pass the subject.
