EE 582Y Power Engineering - I

Welcome to Power Systems Engineering -I

This course provides a review of fundamentals, then delves deeper into selected topics allowing the graduate student to explore more complex aspects in keeping with their experience and interests. Topics covered are three-phase power systems, second-order circuits and analysis, characterization and modeling of power system components, such as transformers and transmission lines with emphasis on non-linearities, and symmetrical components.

This provides the background for study of power flow and system operation with extension to advanced power system components. This course recognizes the rich experience base of the students and encourages cooperative education. Text Book - Power Systems Analysis & Design; Glover & Sarma -Chapters 1-5,7,8.

This page continues to develop as a resource to the students. Please chaeck back frequetly.
