Type:

Master

Module name:

Analysis and Simulation of Electrical Systems


Scope and form:

This module deals with the analysis of modern power systems. The range of analysis tasks encountered by an electrical power engineer is set in context with regard to the effective design, optimization and operation of the power system. The spectrum of system actions and responses is used to structure the range of knowledge and associated analysis techniques studied. The module emphasizes the need to select the appropriate analysis tool and to deepen the skill and know-how associated with these tools. This module introduces the appropriate models and analytical methods in relation to power systems and subsequent modules build on this material.
