Transients in Power Systems
2nd Cycle Studies - Mestrado
Power Systems Introduction; Stationary State in Electrical Power Systems
The unit works with master classes with theoretical exposure and debate of the subjects listed in the syllabus. Whenever appropriate to clarify the theoretical concepts presented in the theoretical exhibition practical problems will be solved. The results of simulation based or field works carried out by students can be presented and discussed in the classes, Whenever possible experts will be invited to give talks about specific topics of the course.
Two main components exist in the continuous assessment: 1 - mid-term and final exams; 2- homework
To provide the students the concepts, principles and theories required to understand, explain and predict the stable and reliable functioning of power systems in a stable and reliable way. At the end of semester students should be able namely: to understand power-frequency control issues and voltage control systems existing in power systems, to understand the transients and dynamics of power generators; to acquire competencies in synthesis and analysis, communication, problems solving, critical analysis and reasoning, autonomous learning.
