Postgraduate Course: Power Systems Engineering and Economics (PGEE11016)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course provides students with a good theoretical knowledge and understanding of power system analysis and operation, including hands-on power system modelling experience. Operation of electricity generation, transmission and distribution systems with increasing renewable content will be analysed using iterative methods for solving network power flow equations and simulated in a power-flow simulation software package (PowerWorld). The basic principles of power system economics (main regulatory regimes and pricing principles) will be analysed in order to combine power system analysis and economic appraisal, providing an insight and ability to estimate future developments. Technical and economic implications of transition to a low-carbon energy systems will be discussed.
