ECE 53200 - Computational Methods for Power System AnalysisLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3
CMPE Special Content Elective
Normally Offered: Each Fall
ECE 43200 and must be enrolled as a junior, senior or graduate classification.
System modeling of three-phase power networks. Computational methods and problem formulation related to load flow and fault studies, and economic dispatch of electric power systems. Assigned projects will involve implementing some of the methods and conducting simple studies.
An introduction to modern power system analysis and computer methods used in planning and operating electric power systems.
Required Text(s): None.
