Module overview

Electric power systems are one of the most important assets of any nation and are responsible for the nation’s assured and non-stop electricity supply. This module provides an overview of the power engineering tools of dynamic modelling, stability analysis and control design, which are needed to ensure that the electricity supply exactly meets the electricity-demand at every instant, and the system operation remains stable so that any unforeseen change or disturbance in the system does not lead to partial or complete system shutdown. The importance of these power engineering tools and concepts are considered in light of the urgently needed large-scale integration of renewable sources to power systems, which may lead to several stability challenges, such as reduced system inertia, stochastic generation and converter driven instabilities.
