Laboratory of Electrical Power Engineering 1
Students will be able to recognize main problems in power plant control. They will get practical experience with state estimation, power flow, short circuit and security analyses. Students will be able to develop dynamic models of electric power system. Students will be able to model main components of thermal, nuclear, hydro and wind power plants to check basic power conversion characterisitics using modern state of the art computer codes and models. Student will have basic capabilities to calculate heat production and dissipation in electric power system components.
- identify heat sources and sinks and calculate ambient conditions having influence on electrical equipment operation
- define and analyze dependence of operational parameters in cooling towers and similar heat transfer equipment
- classify faults in electrical power networks and to calculate fault current values
- explain the difference in the short circuit values for different locations in the network and various network configurations
- analyze the steady state of power network and to calculate the power flows in the network
- select the structure of power networks
- argue the impact of distributed energy sources on power networks
- create graphics-based systems for data collection and analysis
