Year 1 core modules
and one optional module
Modules offered may vary.
In this module we build on the second year module Electrical Engineering 2. We present methods of power system analysis in sufficient depth to give a sound understanding of a broad range of topics related to power system engineering.
You examine transmission lines – two-port network representation of p/T equivalent circuits. You analyse voltage, current, power, power factor and efficiency.
We look at power flows - the power flow problem, matrix solution of power flow problem, control of power flow, faults – symmetrical faults and three phase short circuits. Plus power system control – generator voltage control, turbine governor control, load-frequency control and economic despatch.
In lectures we explain principles and discuss applications and solution of relevant examples. Then in practicals you use of software packages (Pspice & Matlab) to analyse power systems.
For assignments you report on your laboratory activity.
You learn how to:
