the price of your electricity and average continuous power use per person.
- Homework 2 due W 02/27: Problems 2.43, 2.47, 2.48, 2.52; investigate
2-phase, 4-phase, 5-phase, ... systems in terms of phase currents
summing to zero and instantaneous phase-powers summing to a constant

industry/structure) on M 02/11
- Project 2 due M 03/31: Matlab Transmission-Line Model Calculator
that takes conductor, bundle and phase information and calculates
an equivalent pi-model. Test on problems 4.18, 4.25, 4.43, 5.24
and class example.
- Project 3 due W 04/16: Add capability to previous transmission line
calculator to compute pi-equivalent transmission line model in per unit,
and thermal and stability limits. Also build functionality to change
impedances from one base to another.
- Project 4 due W 04/23: Admittance matrix builder - read transmission
line and transformer data to build Ybus. Test on class example and 9-bus.
- Final Project due W 05/14: Load-flow program and system design.
