Subject description

Prerequisits:

  • Enrollment into the program.

Content (Syllabus outline):

Power system operation, modeling of power system elements, methods for power flow calculation, optimal power flow calculation, short-term load forecasting, active power and frequency control, reactive power and voltage control, ancillary service procurement, impact of energy markets on power system operation, power system reliability, security of supply.

Objectives and competences:

Students will obtain an overview of operation of electric power systems (generators, loads, transmission lines, transformers etc.). This course presents methods for power flow calculation, explains optimal power flows and the optimization objectives. Students will become familiar with the role of system reserves, ancillary services especially with active power and frequency control and reactive power and voltage control, the impact of energy markets on power system operation, concepts of reliable operation of power systems, security of supply. Also they will lean how to forecast the system loading – consumption.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • Knowledge and understanding:

Students will understand operation of power systems. With gained knowledge, they will be able to solve some basic problems in the field of power system operation.

  • Application:

Review and general knowledge of power system operation.

  • Reflection:

Understanding of statistical analyses in the frame of reliable operation of power systems and ability to integrate the gained knowledge with the existing in a complex picture.

  • Transferable skills:

Ability to collaborate in different tasks considering power system operation and determination of development programs, action plans in the field of power system planning.

Learning and teaching methods:

  • Lectures and exercises.
