ECE 633 - Modeling and Simulation of Power System Components - Spring 2012

Instructor: Steven D. Pekarek

Address: Purdue University, Electrical Engineering Bldg, 465 Northwestern Ave., West Lafayette, IN, 47907-2035
Phone: (765) 494-3434
Fax: (765) 494-0676
Office: ECE 148
Office Hours: Tuesday, Thursday 2-3:15 (Eastern time) and by appointment .

Course Objective: To acquaint the graduate student with the analysis and simulation techniques of power system components.

Course Description: This course is recommended for those interested in learning to use computer simulation to investigate the dynamic and controlled behavior of electrical power components. Beginning with an introduction to MATLAB/SIMULINK, the course goes through the key steps of modeling, implementing, and verifying the simulation of transmission lines, single and three-phase transformers, induction machines and wound-field synchronous machines.  Students are expected to implement and verify about six simulation projects, and also discuss observed behaviors on topics such as inrush current in transformers, motoring, generation and braking operation of machines, and pulsating torque from sub-synchronous resonance.
