## Learning Outcomes

The student understands the modeling methods of electrical power systems. The student builds simple simulation models using a transient simulator software package and gets an overview on possibilities of modern simulation tools in modeling electrical switching phenomena.

Total work load of the course 82 h
Scheduled studies 42 h
Autonomous studies 40 h

## Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

Electric Power Networks, Power Transmission and Converter Engineering

## Contents

By building simulation models the students will understand the operation of electric power system, synchronous generator and squirrel cage motors during transient situations. As separate projects, simple systems are modeled and their operation simulated. All projects will be reported.

## Recommended or Required Reading and Other Learning Resources/Tools

Kimmo Kauhaniemi, Olavi Mäkinen: PSCAD simulointiohjelma Käytön perusteet. (handout) Instructions for exercises. Material available on Moodle.

## Mode of Delivery / Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods

Simulations models are designed using PSCAD software. The operations of the midels is tested and required calculations made. Reports are drawn up of the projects.

## Assessment Criteria

5: The student is able to utilise the calculation methods learnt during simulation of electric power systems independently and combine the knowledge with previously learnt in various context
3: The student is able to utilise the calculation methods learnt during simulation of electric power systems independently.
1: The student is able, with quidance, to utilise the calculation methods learnt during simulation of electric power systems.

## Assessment Methods

Assessment of reports 100%.
