Thomas J Overbye
|Detailed Description and Outline
The main course goal is to provide students with an overview of the engineering and economic matters involved in designing, operating and controlling the power generation and transmission of a large scale, interconnected power system. At the conclusion of the course students should be able to design proto-types of the computer algorithms used for power system operation and control.
||The student is expected to write a number of programs to solve the assignments.|
