Learning Outcomes
With the successful completion of the course the student will have the following abilities: 1. Ability to calculate a Power System's admittance matrix and table of factors. 2. Ability to find the optimal node ordering (with two algorithms) and calculate the "sparse preservation matrix" of a Power System's admittance matrix. 3. Ability to apply various computation methods (Newton, Fast Decoupled Load Flow, DC Load Flow) for the solution of a Power System's power flow problem. 4. Ability to simulate phase and load shifting transformers for the load flow calculation in a Power System's transmission line. 5. Utilization of the «Matrix Inversion Lemma» for finding the Power System's post-disturbance state. 6. Transmission lines overloads' management (lifting), through a redispatch in the generating units power output. 7. Generation units operation in an autonomous or interconnected Power System. 8. Understanding the Automatic Generation Control targets in a Power System and how they can be achieved.
