The aim of this unit is to instill confidence and understanding of those concepts of power system analysis that are likely to be encountered in the study and practice of electrical power engineering. The approach is to develop the thinking process of the student in reaching a sound understanding of a broad range of topics in the power-system area of electrical engineering. Calculation of unbalanced fault conditions, methods of symmetrical components, the admittance model and network calculations, the impedance model and network calculations,Thevenin's theorem and load flow solutions, the Gauss-Seidel method, the Newton-Raphson method, power flow studies in system design and operation, DAPPER application for load flow analysis, fault calculation using the bus impedance matrix, transient stability, the equal-area criterion for transient stability, economic operation of power systems, unit commitment, state estimation of power systems, reliability analysis of power systems.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.
