Structure, analysis and operation of electrical systems
Master in Renewable Energy in Power Systems (Plan: 276 - Estudio: 266)


Department assigned to the subject: Electrical Engineering Department

Type: Additional training
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Basic knowledge about the analysis of linear single-phase and balanced three-phase ac circuits
The purpose of these training supplements is to provide adequate knowledge of Electrical Engineering that, due to the previous training of some students, has not been acquired. The specific objectives are: - Know the structure of an electrical system and the equipment that composes it. - Know the basic types of analysis of electrical systems (power flow, short circuits, transient stability) and use commercial tools to carry out these types of analysis. - Know the principles of control of the fundamental parameters of an electrical system: frequency and voltage.
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
0. Introduction and basics. 1. Per-unit quantities. 2. Load-flow solutions and control. 3. Symmetrical three-phase faults. 4. Power system stability. 5. Frequency control and voltage control. The sessions corresponding to topics 2 to 4 include practices with commercial electrical system simulation programs (PowerWorld Simulator or similar).
Learning activities and methodology
- Magisterial classes, tutorship and personal work oriented to the acquisition of theoretical knowledge. - Problems solution classes, computer sessions, tutorship and personal work oriented to the acquisition of practical skills
