This course will provide the students with a basic understanding of the fundamental concepts in modelling, analysis, and simulation of three-phase electrical networks. The main subjects are around generation and transmission of electrical power. Basic concepts of protection and power quality in electrical grids will also be presented. The focus of the course will be on traditional power networks; however, modern electrical grids (so-called smart grids) will also be introduced. About 40%-50% of the class time will be dedicated to simulation exercises (using MATLAB/Simulink and DIgSILENT PowerFactory) and invited industrial/academic lectures.

The main topics are as follows:
Introduction to power systems
Powers in single- and three-phase systems
Power factor and power factor correction
Per-phase analysis of three-phase circuits
Per-unit system
Generator and transformer modelling
Transmission line modelling
Power electronic applications in power systems
