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. Both linear and nonlinear stability analyses are presented in conjunction with time-domain simulation of the differential-algebraic power system models.
