ELEC97066 (EE4-48) Power System Dynamics, Stability and Control

Lecturer(s): Prof Bikash Pal


Electric power network is by far the largest machine built on the Earth. The requirement for round the clock electricity supply can only be met through involved operation, control and co-ordination strategy and protective actions. This course will present mathematical model of important components in the system and the concept of controlling and protecting them under varying operating circumstances.

A prerequisite for this course for M.Eng students is E3.13 Electrical energy systems: Students in MSc control must have Electrical Engineering background with electrical energy systems taught course background

Learning Outcomes

The student will have good grasp on model development for power generation system models both synchronous and asynchronous for power system dynamic studies and analysis. They would be able to interpret various parameters and and constants in various dynamic blocks in power system simulation software. They will have developed the skill to understand and validate generation system dynamic response through frequency domain analysis such as eigen-value analysis etc as their further effort.


The first half of the course will cover modelling of synchronous machines for power system stability studies. The second half will cover modelling and analysis of four types of induction generator for wind energy applications. Both phase and d-q domain will be covered. Examples will be solved to reinforce understanding.
