Description Students will study in detail the way that electricity is generated and transported across country and how a national grid is operated. Issues of connection of local generation capability to a grid. Issues related to power quality and system stability. Three phase supply and provision of dual voltage supply systems. Simple transformer theory will be extended to consider street corner supply techniques. Battery storage in combination with solar panels for remote applications will be studied.
Learning Outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an awareness of the technical issues associated with providing electrical power on a national scale.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of single-phase and three-phase electrical circuits and the use of phasor analysis
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the fundamental principles of the main components of the electrical power systems: transformers, electrical machines, transmission lines.
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the fundamental of power conversion systems.
