This unit introduces students to the basics of power system analysis, power generation and power transmission systems. Students will gain skills in analysing and modelling power systems, including calculating fault currents, performing stability analysis and solving load flow studies. The unit provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to undertake advanced studies in electrical power engineering.

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.
