Aims
To provide students with an introduction to the components and composition of an electric power system.

To consider the different primary energy sources and the way in which power is delivered to the customers.
Learning outcomes 
A. Know why power systems are necessary and how they are organized in terms of independent components/functions.

B. Understand the importance of alternative energy sources, including the conversion from the original form to electrical energy.

C. Understand the relationship between real power flow with the phase difference across a line, and also the relationship between reactive power flow with voltage magnitude difference.

D. Understand the application of machine and transformer equivalent circuits to power system analysis and able to perform calculations in per unit system.

E. Use the equivalent circuits of the different pieces of equipment to derive a circuit description of the power system.

F. Calculate relevant steady state operation of a power system, being confident in the use of the per unit system, both in the representation of circuit quantities and in calculations.
