Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
ESPB 6.0 Status elective
Condition Exams: Control systems, Power system analysis
The goal Introduce students to the basic control concepts for regulated and deregulated power systems. Basic control loop definition and familiarization with control resources and devices. Familiarize students with time and space problem decomposition, power system components model approximation and application for different power systems control aspects.
The outcome Provide students with the ability to design models and develop algorithms for analysis of control loops and control device effects. Provide students with the ability to conduct simulation by using standard program packages. Provide students with ability to analyse control system performances by combining engineering intuition and mathematical algorithms.
