Description: EE 581 (Power System Analysis) is intended for advanced engineering students interested in learning the principles of power system behavior, and methods for computer-based modeling, simulation and analysis.

Topics: Chapters 1-13 of textbook.

• Homeworks and Projects: 60%
• Lectures and Presentations: 20%
• Participation: 20%

• Read Chapters 1 and 2 (01/19/2010)

Homeworks:

• Homework 1 due M 02/01/2010: Problems 2.3, 2.10, 2.30, 2.38
• Homework 2 due M 02/08/2010: Problems 3.23, 3.41
• Homework 3 due M 02/15/2010: Problems 4.5 (Finch), [4.18 (Cardinal), 4.19, 4.39, 4.40], [4.20, 4.41], [4.25 (Cardinal), 4.44]
• Homework 4 due M 02/22/2010: Problems [5.14, 5.15, 5.23], [5.16, 5.17, 5.24]
• Homework 5 due M 03/01/2010: Problems [5.38, 5.39] (also find theoretical and practical limits using lossy and lossless lines), 5.40 (also find theoretical and practical limits using lossy and lossless lines), 5.42
• 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 Ybus for the system. Make your input a text, csv or excel file and your output the complex matrix Ybus 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 Ybus 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.
Test your programs on the lines of problems 5.38, 5.39, 5.40 using a base power of 100MVA.
