Generally, the student will be able to:
- Analyze and design electric power systems.
- Analyze the dynamic response of a power system.
- Perform power system dynamic studies similar to those carried out by electric companies.
More specifically, the student will adquire:
Capability to recognize the agents of a power system involved in each control system.
Ability to select the appropriate devices to solve voltage problems in an electric grid and to explain how they work.
Capability to recognize the phenomena that can result in a voltage collapse.
Capability to explain in detail the primary, secondary and tertiary frequency control systems.
Capability to explain the load shedding and other load disconnection schemes in the peninsular power system.
Ability to foresee the behavior of the frequency control systems after different incidents in the power grid.
Ability to select a power system analysis software tool depending on the type of study.
Capability to explain the main phenomena that rule the electro-mechanical oscillations in a power system after a severe perturbation.
Ability to analyze the results of a dynamic simulation such as the performed by the transmission system operators.
