Protections and Reliability 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
At the end of semester students should be able namely: to understand the objectives and operation of the protection systems as well as identify the different components of modern protection systems necessary to a stable and reliable functioning of power systems; to understand reliability issues in generation transmission and distribution systems; to acquire competencies in synthesis and analysis, communication, problems solving, critical analysis and reasoning, autonomous learning.
