Electric Power Systems II

Course overview No.: 35606 & 35608

German title: Elektrische Energieversorgung II

The students gain a deepening of their knowledge regarding the interaction of equipment in electrical energy systems. Lecture is held on Tuesdays from 08:00 am to 09:30 am. The exercises are held on Wednesdays from 12:00 am to 01:00 pm.



After successful completion of the module, students can:

  • describe the different types of neutral point treatment and calculate characteristic earth (short) term magnitudes and apply suitable approximation methods
  • determine the thermal and mechanical stress in the event of short circuits and design the equipment accordingly
  • demonstrate knowledge on how to maintain stable operation and apply static and transient stability analysis procedures for the single-machine problem
  • explain and mathematically describe the effect of primary and secondary control and grid control in interconnected operation
  • explain the modes of operation of various network protection devices, the possibilities of power flow control and the occurrence of temporary overvoltages
