This course focuses on transmission technology of electric power, on which modern society heavily depends. Topics include equivalent circuit for a power system component, per-unit system, power circular diagram, fault analysis, and angle stability of a power system.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand how electric power is delivered through a power system;
2) Construct the corresponding equivalent circuits to power systems;
3) Calculate imbalanced voltage, current, and/or impedance in power systems under fault conditions;
4) Obtain the voltage stability in transmission/distribution systems and the steady-state stability of generators.
power system, three-phase circuit, active and reactive power, transmission line, power transformer, synchronous generator, equivalent circuit of a power system component, per-unit system, voltage control, fault analysis, symmetrical components, angle stability, protection relay, power distribution
