Module Content This lecture covers the essential aspects of the operation and analysis of power systems. The following
topics will be covered:
  • Operation of synchronous generators (steady-state operation, power chart, steady-state stability,transient stability, transient behavior)
  • Calculation of short-circuit currents (Decaying three-phase short-circuit currents)
  • Neutral grounding in MV- and HV-Systems (Systems with isolated neutrals, resonant grounding and solidly grounded neutrals)
  • Network Protection
Competences At the end of the lecture, the student should have a profound understanding of synchronous generator
behavior, decaying short-circuit currents and their calculation and a basic understandning of neutral point
treatment and network protection. The different types of power system stability are known.
Prerequisites none
Material Learning material will be available in Moodle (Registration via TUCaN is required!)
Exam The exam date will be announced via Moodle.

The registration for the written exam takes place via the TUCaN system. If the registration via TUCaN is not possible, please contact your study office. The participation is only possible after registration. For reasons of spatial planning, this is also necessary for Business Administration/Industrial Engineering students. The registration deadline for the written exams is up to 1 month, and cancellation up to 8 days before the exam date.
Guest lectures, Excursions Will be announced during the lectures.
