ELEC5505 Power System Analysis
- 6 points
|Semester 2||UWA (Perth)||Face to face|
- This unit covers power network structures and steady-state model; power-flow analysis formulation; voltage and reactive-power control; short-circuit fault analysis; control in fault operating conditions; power systems protection; power and frequency control; and stability. The academic objective of the unit is for students to achieve a broad and in-depth education in the subject of power transmission and control.
- Students are able to (1) demonstrate professional engineering skills and abilities when working in teams; (2) demonstrate the ability to model power systems components (transmission lines, transformers, generators and loads); (3) analyse the power flow of a simple interconnected power system with multiple sources and loads using Gauss-Siedal, Newton Raphson, and decoupled power flow methods; (4) analyse the impact of short-circuit faults on the power network and make design changes to the network to control the fault currents; (5) describe and analyse various protection schemes for power transmission and distribution systems; and (6) describe and analyse the techniques for control of voltage and frequency of interconnected power systems.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) class tests; (2) assignments; and (3) final examination. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is only available in this unit in the case of a student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
