Be able to reproduce and apply theory of transformer, compensator and generator function with view to voltage control. Can use reliability computations in relation to electric power system (EPS) control (global reliability characteristics).

Teaching methods

Project work
Other activities


Subject deals with frequency control in EPS and with algorithms of frequency control. Further it contents voltage control in all voltage levels, theory of function of transformer, compensator and generator in relation to voltage control. Subject also deals with grid code, relation between reliability and electric power system control and with global reliability characteristics of electric power supply.
