Condition Thermal Processes in Electrical Power Components
The goal Application of modern computer based techniques for solving practical thermal problems in electric power engineering.
The outcome Advanced methods of modeling thermal processes. Illustrations of up-to-date methods and software for solving wide range of important thermal issues in practice of design and utilizing electric power components. New possibilities of interest for smart grids.
Contents of lectures Modeling of transient and non-linear thermal problems, being of interest for the protection and monitoring of power components in real operating conditions. Basics of design founded on hydraulic and heat transfer calculations. Theoretical background of software for simulation of transient thermal processes and software for FEM CFD calculations. General and special design purpose software.
Contents of exercises Numerical examples, software presentations and building complex computer models and running calculations on the computer.
