Elective courses (2. semester)

Learning Outcomes

  1. compute the state vector of an electric power system
  2. analyse the mathematical procedures of power flow calculations
  3. assess the power system topology
  4. estimate the state of the power system
  5. assess the power system security

Forms of Teaching


Lectures take place in a lecture room with a lecturer who is an expert on a specific subject. The lecture is interactive, and students are expected to participate in the discussion.


Recitations include solving practical tasks and discussing solving procedures.

Independent assignments

Students work on projects during the semester.


Laboratory exercises are held in labs equipped with computers. During the exercise, students try out theoretical concepts and apply them to specific problems.
