This course introduces and explains fundamentals of electrical power systems design and engineering. Phasors and their application to power systems analysis are reviewed. The concept of the per-unit system is introduced and applied to circuit calculations. Transformers and their application to electrical power transmission and distribution systems will be covered. Transmission line parameters, their calculation, and transmission line modeling are introduced. Steady-state operation of transmission lines is modeled and investigated. Power flow analysis computational techniques are covered. Short-circuit analysis and the method of symmetrical components are introduced. The concept of power system protection and the role of automatic relays will be covered. Primary and secondary distribution systems and substations are introduced. Renewable energy generation and the integration of renewable energy into the modern power grid will be introduced.
