ECTS:

6

Type:

Bachelor

Module name:

Protection in Power Systems


Scope and form:

Lectures and group exercises in connection with the lectures


Duration (weeks; Hours/week):

15 weeks; 2 hours lecture, 1 hour group exercise/week (150 hours of workload)

Type of assessment:

Written examination and project

Qualified Prerequisites:

Basic knowledge of DC and AC circuits and main AC components


General module objectives:

To give basic understanding of protection power systems and power components. Students will be expected to demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals of electrical power protection and applications, to recognise the different fault types, perform simple fault and design calculations, understand protection system components, to choose appropriate protective devices for different equipment.


Topics and short description:

The goal of this module is to help students develop an in-depth understanding of analytical techniques for faults that occur on a power system and the corresponding protection schemes that are designed to minimize the impact.
Protection Principles and Components,
Limitations of Traditional Overcurrent Protection,
The Role of Protection,
Fault Calculation,
Overcurrent Protection,
Transient Overvoltage Protection,
Protection and Monitoring of Generators, Transformers, Generator-Transformer Units,
Busbar Protection,
Transmission Line Protection,
Protection of Motors, Reactors, Boosters and Capacitors,
Protective Transformers, Fuses, Relays, Protection Signalling,
Application of protection systems to renewable energy system,
Modern Solutions for Distribution System Protection, Automation, and Monitoring,
Power System Communications, information Processing, information Security.
