As an extension of Electrical machines I course, the goal of this course is to introduce students to the various types of electric motors and generators available; and introduce students to the operating principles, methods of starting and area of applications of synchronous and induction machines.

This course will introduce and explain the fundamental concepts in the field of electrical power system engineering. The basic concepts of per unit system will be introduced along with their applications in circuit applications. Transmission line parameters, their calculations, and the modeling will be introduced. Basic load flow algorithms will be covered in details along with short-circuit analysis and the method of symmetrical components. Unbalanced fault analysis and basic power system stability analysis will also be covered in these lecture series. By the end of the course, the students should be able to gather high-quality knowledge of electrical power system components, its operation strategies, and stability analysis.

This course is an extension of Generation of Electric Power course. It deals with basic theory of transmission lines modeling and their performance analysis. Also this course gives emphasis on mechanical design of transmission lines, cables and insulators.

This course mainly focuses the distribution end of the power system in which the characteristics of load, classification of distribution systems, substations, protection of the distribution systems are introduced. This course shall introduce the modeling of the components (feeders, distribution transformer, regulators, capacitors, loads, distributed generation, storage, etc.) and analysis methods (load flow, short-circuit, etc.), specially developed for the distribution system.

Scope and objective of the course:
With the advent of semiconductor devices, revolution is taking place in the power transmission distribution and utilization. This course introduces the basic concepts of power semiconductor devices, converters and choppers and their analysis.
