Power System Analysis Using PSSE Software

0 Reviews

Course Description


Power system analysis are an essential part of electrical power system design. Calculations and simulations are performed to verify that the electrical system, including the system components, are correctly specified to perform as intended, withstand expected stress and be protected against failures. The level of detailing and accuracy of the models and results increase towards the “as built” and operational phases. For many installations, the models are validated by measurements of the electrical system performance in operation. A validated “as built” model provides significant advantages when used for decision support throughout the installation’s operational phase and for verification of proposed future installation modifications.
