MP3215 - Power Systems: Analysis

This is an introductory course which exposes the student to fundamental design aspects of utility bulk power transmission systems. The student is first introduced to the overall layout and function of each component of typical utility systems. Types and characteristics of overhead line conductors and related hardware are also covered. Sub-transmission and distribution system calculations are introduced, followed by exact and approximate system models used in analysis of medium and long transmission lines. The student is also introduced to basic structural design aspects of high voltage transmission lines. Other major electrical design aspects of high voltage transmission lines are introduced. The course concludes with an overview of the design and construction of high voltage cables for both underground and submarine applications.
