EE330A: Power Systems

Course Description

This course is relevant for undergraduate students of Electrical Engineering (typically in their third year). This course discusses various aspects involved in the modeling of power systems. Further, (one) typical steady-state, sub-transient and transient study of a power network are also discussed.

Pre-requisites - ESO203 (will aid in better understanding of this course).

Mode of lectures - online and asynchronous on mooKIT

Tutorial/ Discussion - via Zoom during 10 AM - 12 PM on Thursdays

Course Content

The course will tentatively have the following modules (and lectures):

  1. Introduction to power system structure and types of components (1 lecture)
  2. Basic circuit principles - three phase circuits, power calculation (2 lectures)
  3. Transformers and per unit analysis (3 lectures)
  4. Synchronous generator (4 lectures)
  5. Transmission line parameter calculation (5 lectures)
  6. Transmission line model (5 lectures)
  7. Power flow analysis (6 lectures)
  8. Fault analysis (6 lectures)
  9. Stability analysis (5 lectures)

Each lecture on mooKIT will typically be of duration 30 - 35 minutes.

Course Audience

Undergraduate students of Electrical Engineering (typically in their third year)

Outcomes of this Course

After completion of this course, a student will be aware of the various aspects involved in modeling and operation of power systems.
