ECE 451 Power System Analysis  
Long-distance transmission of electric power with emphasis on load flow, economic dispatch, fault calculations and system stability. Applications of digital computers to power-system problems. Major design project.

Additional course information provided by the department:

The course will help students understand how power systems are modeled both at the distribution and transmission levels. The course covers long-distance transmission of electric power with emphasis on admittance and impedance modeling of components and system, power-flow studies and calculations, symmetrical and unsymmetrical fault calculations, economic operation of large-scale generation and transmission systems. Emphasis is on applications of computer-based methods to power-system problems. Textbooks Grainger, John J., and William D. Stevenson. Power system analysis. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1994.
