Modeling and Simulation of Power System Components

ECE63300

Spring 2018

Days/Time: TTh / 3:00-4:15 pm
Credit Hours: 3

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

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 eight 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.SP2016 Syllabus

Topics Covered:
Modeling and Simulation Background, Transformers, Induction Machines, Wound Rotor Synchronous Machines, Transmission Lines, Advanced Simulation Topics.

Prerequisites:
An Elements of Power System Engineering course (Purdue ECE 432) or equivalent; An Energy Conversion course (ECE 610) is helpful pre- or co-requisite.

Applied/Theory: 50/50

All handouts (supplementary notes, reading assignments, project descriptions) will be posted on Blackboard.

Homework:
Homework/projects will be assigned approximately every other week.

Projects:
Approximately 8 homework/projects based on simulation of the models developed in class will be given.

Exams:
No exams. Course will be graded based on homework/projects.
