B. Gain knowledge and understanding of the concepts of security constrained power system operation; Gain knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of electricity market and the difference with traditional operation; Be familiar with different electricity market models and pricing strategies.
C. Explain relevant theories and technology; Use optimisation techniques for economic operation of power systems; Use DC load flow for power system contingency analysis.
D. Use Matlab and different programs for power system analysis; Use optimization / cooptimisation techniques for electricity market operation.
E. Calculate and analyse fault conditions via symmetrical components; Design and analyse protective relaying schemes; Design and analysis smart grids.
F. Apply their knowledge and skills in resolving the specified research and design problems.

Method of teaching and learning

This module will be delivered through a combination of formal lectures and laboratory and tutorials.  Students will receive regular feedback on laboratory reports to help them to monitor their progress.
