Engineering - Course - Power System Reliability And Security

  • Course Code: POWE608
  • Credits: 3
  • Hours Distribution: (3Cr.)
  • Course Type: Electric Power and High Voltage Engineering (EPHVE)

Course Description

The course will cover methodology and techniques for reliability and security analysis of power systems. The topics in the course can be grouped in three parts: 1. Techniques for reliability evaluation, such as minimum cut set and Markov models to model weather effects and maintenance. Models for evaluation of generation systems (LOLP, LOLE and Energy not supplied). 2. Load flow models applied to contingency analysis. 3. Combination of load flow modeling and reliability evaluation for analysis of meshed networks (regional and main grid). To give a deeper understanding of the problems in power system reliability and security, and to provide methods and techniques to solve these problems.
