- Homework 6 due M 03/08/2010: Problems 6.22 (write a matlab program to solve)

**Programming Projects:**

- Project 1 due M 02/08/2010: Write a program in Matlab that reads in per unit
impedance data for generators, loads, lines and transformers, and outputs
the admittance matrix Y
_{bus}for the system. Make your input a text, csv or excel file and your output the complex matrix Y_{bus}that you can print neatly (see fprintf and/or sparse for ideas on printing and storage). Depending on the application the source impedance may or may not be wanted in the admittance matrix. Include an option in your program to construct the admittance matrix both ways. Where are the differences between them? Use your program to find Y_{bus}for the systems in problems 2.38, 3.23 and 3.41. -
Project 2 due M 02/22/2010: Write a program in Matlab that takes
characteristics of conductor, geometry of bundle and phase, and
length of line as inputs to compute
- per-phase (per km and mile) resistance, inductance, capacitance, series impedance, and shunt admittance;
- short-line, medium-line and long-line π circuits/models.

- Project 3 due M 03/01/2010: Write programs in Matlab that
- use line models and base values to compute the per unit line models; and
- use line data and base values to compute line limits (SIL, thermal, theoretical and practical values for lossless and lossy cases) and corresponding per unit limits.

- Project 4 due M 03/22/2010
