This course is about one of the main areas of electrical engineering: power system analysis. Power system analysis is the core of power engineering and its understanding is therefore essential for a career in this field.
In this course, you will learn about the steady-state and transient stability of power systems and their importance in the safe and reliable operation of power systems.
The course is divided into the following sections:
1. Introduction to Power System Stability:
In section 1, we will introduce the concept of power system stability at a high level. We will begin by defining steady-state and transient stability and discussing the differences between them. We will also introduce important fundamental concepts, such as the swing equation and the power angle curve.
2. Steady-State Stability
In the second section, we will thoroughly discuss steady-state stability. Steady-state stability is the ability of a power system to remain stable after a small disturbance in the system occurs. These small disturbances can be normal operating occurrences, such as load changes in the system and it is therefore critical that a power system is able to withstand these small changes and remain stable.
In each section, several examples are solved to illustrate how to analyze real-world power systems. By learning about steady-state stability and its importance in power systems, you will be able to continue your study of power system analysis for a career in power engineering and electrical engineering.
