Module Content System behaviour of innovative equipment in the Transmission System
Fields of application:
  • Power transmission and voltage stability
  • Ancillary services
  • Power quality
Technology of innovative equipment:
  • Power Electronics theory
  • Motivation, technical realisation and operation / control of HVDC systems (LCC and VSC)
  • Motivation, technical realisation and operation / control of power electronic devices for reactive
    power compensation (SVC, STATCOM, SC)
  • Practical examples and outlook
Competences After successful completion of this module, the students will have a basic understanding of various innovative equipment (HVDC, FACTS) in power systems. They will be able to understand the system behaviour and operation of these devices and realize the importance of modelling and simulation for a safe and reliable design and operation.
