About this course
To provide a basic understanding of electricity and the main related calculation principles. The students are introduced to the electricity grid and the main components involved in the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy. Moreover, principles calculations in simple networks are covered.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the learner will be able to:
Identify key relationships in the electricity supply grid
Calculate the electrical quantities of 3-phase electrical network
Apply electrical components equivalents
Model transformers with appropriate equivalents
Model the overhead lines with appropriate equivalent
Model the cables with appropriate equivalents
Calculate the voltage and current in simple networks
Analyse given load conditions
Apply the per-unit principle
Introduction to nummerical methods for solving electrical systems.
Good understanding of circuit calculations and especially calculations using complex numbers and three phase systems. The student also should have a level ov competetency in the use of calculation programs like Excel, Maple, Matlab and the like.
