Requisite(s): 48572 Power Circuit Theory
Recommended studies: power circuit theory knowledge is essential for this subject; complex numbers and its application to the analysis of AC circuits; power circuit analysis and fault calculations; fundamentals of electrical machines; MATLAB programming to solve simple problems
Field of practice: Electrical Engineering major
The primary objective of this subject is the development of a working knowledge of power systems operation and protection. The subject aims to provide students with a knowledge and understanding of elements of power system protection and operation. Detailed contents covers the principles of overcurrent protection, differential protection, distance protection and their applications in transmission and distribution power network; the basic principles of power economic dispatch and components of electricity market; and demand side management options including smart meters, load forecast and optimal load scheduling for secure energy supply and use. Basic design, connection and standards of current and voltage instrument transformers for protection and metering applications, communications and automation with the aid of SCADA systems will also be covered. Students engage in hands-on experimental learning through completion of a design project. 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 project work as a team.
