Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • critically analyse the power system and the grid structure from a general perspective,
  • perform calculations on connected complex electrical networks with multiple sources and load in terms of stability, losses and load flows,
  • analyze the impact of various technical solutions for stabilization,
  • account for different regulatory principles,
  • analyze the grid from a vulnerability perspective,
  • resonate about the emergence and suppression of network propagations,
  • account for compensation principles and equipment,
  • account for connection to the grid of distributed and new renewable sources,
  • account for signal-box and switchgear


The transmission network and the structure of the distribution network. Load flows and losses. Signal-box and switching equipment. The electricity market. Introduction of renewable sources to the grid. Stability and regulation methods. Voltage, frequency and small signal stability. Compensation equipment and transmission of high voltage direct current (HVDC). Flexible AC Power Transmission System (FACTS), reactive power compensation with Static VAR compensator (SVC) and Static synchronous compenstor (STATCOM). Accessibility and vulnerability. Case studies with different themes.


Lectures, exercises, guest lectures, laboratory work, study visits, seminars, presentation of assignments and case studies.


Written examination with problem solving and theory questions. Written reports, design report in English and seminars. 
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.

Other directives

The course can not be included in a degree together with 1TE648 Power System Engineering, 1TE671 Electrical Power Transmission Systems, 1TE213 Electric Circuit Systems or 1TE700 Power System Analysis.
