Power Systems Dynamics and Control (ELEC5211)

UNIT OF STUDY

The unit deals with power systems modelling, analysis and simulation under transient conditions. The unit will cover the following topics: - Analysis of power systems subject to electromagnetic and electromechanical transients - Power system modelling for stability analysis and electromagnetic transients analysis: Synchronous machine modelling using Park's transformation; Modelling of excitation systems and turbine governors; Modelling of the transmission system; Load modelling. - Simulation of interconnected multi machine systems - Stability analysis: Transient stability; Voltage stability; Frequency stability; Small signal stability. - Power system control: Voltage control; Frequency control; Power system stabilizers; Emergency control. The unit is a specialist Unit for MPE (Power) and ME (Electrical and Power). It is also available as a recommended elective for BE Electrical (Power).
