Curriculum Designation: Tier II course for electrical engineering majors.
Course (Catalog) Description: Introduction to the fundamentals of energy conversion; structure of power systems and power system components: transformers, rotating machines, and transmission lines. The operation and analysis of power systems are presented.
Prerequisites: EEL 3112
Textbooks/Required Material: Power System Analysis, Author: Bergen & Vittal, Publisher: Prentice Hall, Edition: Second, 2000.
- Analyze the performance of a simple power system with a single source and single load. For this,
- Read a single line diagram and construct a single-phase electrical circuit representation of a three-phase system.
- Convert delta connections to wye/star connections.
- Model a load given as a complex power as an impedance.
- Calculate the phase and line voltages in the circuit.
- Calculate the current flows and voltage drops in the circuit.
- Use the per unit system in circuit analysis. For this,
- Select an appropriate power and voltage bases.
- Calculate the impedance and current bases.
- Adjust bases across transformers, taking into account the turns ratio.
- Convert electrical quantities from engineering values to per unit values and vice versa.
- Convert per unit impedances from one base to another.
- Analyze the performance of a piece of power apparatus (transformer, transmission line, synchronous machine). For this,
- Form the electrical circuit model of the device.
- Calculate the efficiency for various loading levels and power factors.
- Calculate the maximum efficiency and required loading.
- Calculate the full-load voltage regulation for various power factors.
- Apply design concepts by specifying the parameters of a piece of power apparatus to meet system design criteria (e.g., specify the transformer ratings to meet voltage regulation requirements.)
- Energy conversion for electrical generation
- Overview of power system components and power calculations
- Per unit system
- Synchronous and induction machines
- DC machines
- Transmission Lines
