Aims and objectives

The aim of this unit is to provide in depth understanding of the analysis techniques used in the design, implementation and evaluation of large scale power systems under different operating conditions.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Design large-scale electrical power systems (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
2. Analyze the performance of large-scale power systems using simulation and computational modeling techniques (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2)
3. Optimize and evaluate the structural characteristics of large-scale electrical power systems (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
4. Model and simulate the behaviours of large power systems with industry standard analysis tools (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
5. Conduct load flow studies of large power systems with different techniques (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
6. Calculate the ratings of compensating devices and reduce a large power networks into a simpler one (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
7. Conduct fault analysis with different types of faults such as short-circuit fault, load change, etc, which occurs in practical power systems (K1, K2, K3, S1, S2, S3)
