6cp; On campus, weekly
Requisite(s): 48572 Power Circuit Theory
Recommended studies: power circuit theory knowledge is essential for this subject

Field of practice: Electrical Engineering major



The primary objective of this subject is the development of a working knowledge of power systems analysis and design. Emphasis is placed on the derivation of equivalent circuits, mathematical models of devices and the system, and on methods of analysis and measurement. Material covered includes electricity supply chain building blocks, system analysis, real/reactive power and load flow analysis, dynamic and transient stability. Students engage in hands-on experimental learning through completion of a design product. Students work in the studio in collaboration with other students, academic staff and industry mentors. Students do a combination of individual self-directed study and product work as a team.
