EE4-48 Power System Control, Measurement and ProtectionLecturer(s): Prof Bikash Pal
Electric power network is by far the largest machine built on the Earth. The requirement for round the clock electricity supply can only be met through involved operation, control and co-ordination strategy and protective actions. This course will present mathematical model of important components in the system and the concept of controlling and protecting them under varying operating circumstances.
A prerequisite for this course for M.Eng students is E3.13 Electrical energy systems: Students in MSc control must have Electrical Engineering background
The student will have good grasp on model development for power system dynamic studies and analysis. They would be able to interprete various parameters and and constants in various dynamic blocks in power system simulation software. They will have developed the skill to understand and validate power system dynamic response through frequency domain analysis such as eigen-value analysis etc.
The course will cover modelling of machines, excitation, prime-movers, governors, network and loads; transient stability; small-signal stability, eigen-value analysis, power system stablisers, wide area measurement; protection philosophy; digital protection; distance and over-current protection
