Courses on electrical machines, power networks, control system engineering.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to
understand concepts in modelling and simulating the dynamic phenomena of electrical power systems,
understand theory and practice of modelling main power system components, such as synchronous machines, excitation systems and turbine governors, frequency and voltage stability and control,
understand the theory and practice of system stability and control and mitigation of system oscillations after contingencies
utilize the analysis of power system dynamics for transmission system planning
perform multi-objective analysis and planning under uncertainty with high penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources,
analyze power capacity, expansion, dynamic modeling and stability countermeasures with increasing penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources.
Dynamic properties of electric generators, conventional as well as high capacity wind turbine generators, power system networks, loads and interconnected / multi-area systems. Models suitable for analyzing the dynamic performance of generators, control of generators, load and frequency control, transient models, electro-mechanical dynamics - small and large disturbances, behavior of generators in case of disturbances, transient stability, equal area criteria, frequency stability and control, voltage stability, stability enhancements.
