POWER SYSTEM ANALYSIS TADP 641 GENERAL COURSE INFORMATION Juan Manuel Gers, PhD Course objectives Review concepts and provide foundations for the students to understand Power Systems and how they are analyzed. Some emphasis is given to Distribution System Analysis. After this course students will handle properly: • • • • • Components of an electric power system and how they are inter-related. Power system modeling in order to carry out the different type of studies like load flow, short circuit, harmonics and other relevant studies. Use of software program to analyze load flow scenarios and find out measures to improve the operation condition of power systems by means of voltage regulation and VAR compensation. Basic overview of system protection. Revision of criteria and calculations to achieve proper relay coordination. Basic understanding of harmonics and considerations to take into account when reconfiguration takes place in distribution systems. Prerequisites • This course is the equivalent level of 1st year graduate course • Participants – Either relatively new graduates in electrical engineering – Or, mature engineers with practical experience, though not necessarily in electrical engineering • Additional “basics” material is available for those not familiar with electrical engineering Methodology For The Course PRESENTATIONS Use of PowerPoint slides Discussion Boards Web articles Weekly exercises EVALUATION One to Three discussion questions/week One assignment/week One student project/examination Software Resources • The course will be illustrated with several examples which will be solved using software programs for Power System Analysis. Therefore, it is essential that every student has access to any of the many packages available in the market. • In general any package is suitable for the course. However, the instructor will be using NEPLAN which is a package developed by BCP in Switzerland who authorized the use of the DEMO Version for the course. The executable file will be posted in the Web for students to download it if required. • Any packages existing at the working place of the student is accepted provided that the corresponding authorization is granted for its use in the course. Discussion Boards • Discussion boards for on-line sessions serve the same purpose as open discussions in a traditional classroom setting. • So, it is important that each student participate as often as possible to get the most out of the class. • Each student at a minimum is required to post their response to each discussion board topic no later than Wednesday evening of each week (unless directed otherwise) and respond to two other postings by Friday evening of the same week. • Quality of your responses and responses to more than two postings with continued discussion beyond Friday helps to solidify the understanding of the material. Discussion Boards (cont.) • Responses to other postings must offer insight into your understanding of the material. A response such as, “I agree” or “you are totally whacked out” are not acceptable responses. • The professor may or may not participate in the discussions but will monitor to ensure proper on-line etiquette is followed. • Responses by the professor should be considered the same as those of the students unless the response is specifically to clarify a question or bring the discussion back on track. • It is important to realize that students taking this class bring a significant amount of experience to the class so the discussion boards are intended to get each student to share their experience so we all can benefit. About the Instructor Juan Gers did his undergraduate studies in Colombia and postgraduate studies in England & Scotland He is resident in Miami area, FL, USA Juan has over 40 years of experience in utility work, consulting, education and research activities. During his professional life, Juan has been involved mainly in Power System Analysis, setting of protection relays and implementation of Distributed Automation schemes.
