ECE63300 - Modeling and Simulation of Power System Components

Spring 2014

Days/Time: TTh / 12:00-1:15 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 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.

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

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
