Course Contents
First quarter: The fundamentals of electric energy quantities such as Voltage, Electrical current, Impedance and Power are explained. A short description of the most important electrical energy components such as transformers, electric machines, power electronic devices and converters is given and models are derived.
Second quarter:

Second quarter: The focus is on the analysis of electrical power systems analysis in steady-state operating conditions. First, the basics of alternating current (AC) systems, operation of interconnected systems, phasor calculation, and per-unit systems are overviewed. Next, important aspects concerning the working principles and modelling of the components involved in power generation, transmission, and control are studied. The final stage covers the theory behind load flow calculation and control of electrical power systems.
Study Goals
First quarter: The student can:

Understand and apply passive network elements (R, L, C), laws of Kirchhof, Lorentz, Faraday

Understand and apply: phasors for simple R,L,C circuits

Understand and apply real and reactive power, rms, active and reactive current, cos phi

Describe direct current (DC), (single phase) alternating current (AC) and (three phase) alternating current systems, star-delta connection
Understand electromechanical energy conversion. The treated machines are: DC motor and Induction (asynchronous) motor

Understand principles and explain main characteristics of the following electronic conversion:
• DC/DC converters (choppers) for more quadrant operation
• DC/AC converters (inverters)
• AC/DC converters (rectifiers)
• AC/AC converters

Second quarter: The student will be able to

1) Describe the working principles of the main components of interconnected power systems.
2) Perform numerical analysis of interconnected power systems with respect to their behavior in steady-state conditions.
3) Define solutions for operational problems.
