Planning and Operation of Electric Power Grids

Course overview No.: 35956 & 35959

German title: Planung und Führung von elektrischen Netzen

The students learn the tasks of network planning and operation management as well as the necessary algorithms.


After successful completion of the module, students are able to work on network planning tasks with common computer programs and are able to:

  • describe the research objectives and methods of network planning and network operation management
  • apply different modal components in stationary and rotating coordinate systems
  • implement the basics of graph theory and build up network equation systems in impedance and admittance form
  • describe and apply algorithms for power flow calculation, for the calculation of symmetrical and asymmetrical short circuits and interruptions and calculations for static and transient stability of multi-machine systems
  • explain and apply procedures for estimating the state of the system and for simulating boundary grids
