Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering
The student will be able to: - Explain the differences between a electromagnetic transients program and a electromechanical transients program - Explain the scope of the power system analysis software tool PSS/E - Enumerate the data needed to solve a power flow - Use these data to solve a power flow in PSS/E - Perform a contingency analysis in PSS/E - Perform a voltage stability analysis in PSS/E - Perform an optimal power flow in PSS/E - Enumerate the data needed to simulate a severe perturbation in a power system - Use these data to execute a dynamic simulation in PSS/E - Extract relevant information from the output of a dynamic simulation - Perform these tasks in PSS/E automatically
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
- Electromagnetic transient simulation - Power flow - Contingency analysis - Economic dispatch - Voltage stability - Optimal power flow - Electromechanical transient simulation - Synchronous generator models - Protections
Learning activities and methodology
Classroom sessions, in which the teacher will explain the theoretical contents. Practical sessions in a computer room. The student will use software tools commonly used by the electric utilities, specially PSS/E. The student will apply the theoretical concepts to practical examples.
