Introduction to electric power and energy systems

Introduction to electric power and energy systems

## Course objectives

This course is an introduction to electric power system engineering. It describes the principles of operation, including regulation. The main components are described and their models in steady state are derived. Three-phase short-circuits are also considered. The exercices involve small systems to illustrate various features of power systems and their operation.Refer to the pedagogical commitment for more information.

Electric power systems analysis

Electric power systems analysis

## Course objectives

This course is the continuation of ELEC0014. It is devoted to computational methods for the analysis of electric power systems of any size in steady-state conditions, in the presence of faults, in balanced and unbalanced operating conditions, respectively. Emphasis is on "system" approaches initiated in course ELEC0014. Exercises involve using a power flow computation software as well as MATLAB scripts for fault analysis.Refer to the pedagogical commitment for more information.

High Voltage Direct Current grids

In 2018 I am teaching this course together with Prof. Xavier Guillaud (Ecole Centrale de Lille) in replacement of Prof. Patricia Rousseaux.
High Voltage Direct Current grids

## Course objectives

High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology offers higher flexibility for electric power transmission. It is an active and fast growing research area and more and more HVDC applications are deployed worldwide. This course covers the fundamentals of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) systems, used for power transmission in electric energy grids.Refer to the pedagogical commitment for more information.

Power systems dynamics, control and stability

Power systems dynamics, control and stability

## Course objectives

Advanced course devoted to the dynamics, the control and the stability of electric power systems. In the first part, dynamic models of various power system components are established. They are combined into a general differential-algebraic model under the phasor approximation. In the second part, various aspects of power system (in)stability are explained. Mainly small systems are used to this purpose, although large-scale system analysis is also considered. Methods are presented for reinforcing stability or estimating how far a system operates from instability. The models and the stability notions are practiced (in hands-on sessions in class and through personal works) using RAMSES, the dynamic simulation software developed at the Univ. of Liège.Refer to the pedagogical commitment for more information.
