Energy Conversion and Power Systems

Module Title Energy Conversion and Power Systems
Module Level Level 2
Module Credits 2.50

Aims and Fit of Module

To equip the students with the knowledge and understanding of power circuit fundamentals and power system components and their relationship with the energy conversion and delivery processes, as well as advanced principles and analyses including but not limited to power network topology, power transmission line model and analysis, sequence analysis, and nodal analysis.

Learning outcomes

A.	Understand the structure and components of an electric power system.
B.	Explain the importance of different energy sources to reach a zero-carbon future, including the conversion from primary energy sources to electricity and the system's operation.
C.	Calculate the balanced and unbalanced complex power flow across three-phase lines and the importance of power factor correction from the perspective of circuit level.
D.	Relate the electrical machines and transformer equivalent circuits to power system analysis and able to perform calculations in per unit system.
E.	Analyze the steady-state operation of a power system, being confident in one-line diagram analysis, both in the representation of circuit quantities and in calculations.

Method of teaching and learning

This module will be delivered through a combination of lectures and labs.
