Power System Analysis (B.Tech. III Year II Sem- EEE)

The course is designed to give students the required knowledge for the design and analysis of electrical power grids. Calculation of power flow in a power system network using various techniques, formation of Zbus and its importance are covered in this course. It also deals with short circuit analysis and analysis of power system for steady state and transient stability


You must be able to analyse single-phase & three-phase circuits, transformer equivalent circuits, and synchronous machines, or equivalent courses. You must have the mathematical skills to work with matrix algebra, complex numbers, vectors, first and second order differential equations.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to do the following:

•To study the development of impedance diagram (p.u) and formation of Y bus.
• To study the Gauss Seidel, Newton raphson, decoupled and fast decoupled load flow methods.
• To study the concept of the Z bus building algorithm.
• To study short circuit calculation for symmetrical faults.
• To study the rotor angle stability analysis of power systems.
• To study the effect of unsymmetrical faults.

Course Outcomes:

After completing this course the candidate should be able to:

•Establish and use power system models based on nodal admittance and impedance matrices for analysis of large networks.
• Define, establish and solve equations for regular (AC) power flow and DC power flow.
• Formulate the optimal power flow problem and solve it using optimization methods.
• Use simulation tools for regular and optimal power flow.
• Model generators, transformers, lines and cables in the positive, negative and zero sequence systems as a basis for the analysis of symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults.
• Perform analysis of power systems subject to symmetrical and unsymmetrical faults.

The student will also have increased his/her abilities to:

• Work independently and in groups.
• Use instruments and equipment in the laboratory.
