Christine Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Prior to joining UBC, she received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011 and 2014, respectively. She earned the B.A.Sc. degree in Engineering Science (Electrical option) from the University of Toronto in 2009.
Christine's primary research interests lie in the modeling, analysis, and control of electric power systems.
Power System Analysis
Transmission and distribution; phasors, complex power; balanced/unbalanced three-phase operation; symmetrical components, sequence networks; voltage regulation; short circuit capacity; circuit breakers; transmission lines, series/shunt impedance; short, medium, and long line models. [3-0-2] Prerequisites
Security and Reliability in the Internet of Things (IoT)
Learning Objectives By the end of this course, it is expected that the students will be able to: Understand the sources of reliability issues and security attacks in IoT systems Appreciate the trade-offs between reliability/security and performance/power Evaluate state of art techniques to analyze the reliability and security of IoT systems Design and Implement reliability and security techniques for IoT devices Detailed Course Outline
EECE 571D - Power System Dynamics and Stability
This course provides students with an overview of the mathematical modelling required to simulate and predict power system dynamic behaviour during and after disturbances. The modelling includes the dynamics of transmission lines, synchronous generators, excitation systems, turbine-governors, and loads. Due to the wide range of time-scales involved with the devices and disturbances in power systems, emphasis is placed on choice of appropriate models with varying degree of detail and complexity for different time-scales of interest.
Renewable and Efficient Electric Power Systems
Course Structure/Operation Context. This course is an elective course within the Urban Systems Pillar in the new Applied Science Professional Master’s Program. The course provides an introduction to the North American power system infrastructure. It explores system-level issues surrounding grid integration of renewables and other emerging technologies.
