Course: Control Systems in Power Engineering
ECTS points: 6 ECTS
Number of classes per week: 3+0+0+3
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Vangel Fustikj
Course Goals (acquired competencies): With completion of the course, the student will consider the methods and tools for understanding, analysis and application of the modern control systems and monitoring of the power system’ components and power system in general. The student will be trained for solving engineering tasks and to make decisions for applying new methods and ways of control of the technical systems in power system.
Course Syllabus: Mathematical modeling and computer simulation of the processes in power plants and substations. Control systems in power plants, substations and in power systems. General consideration for experimental identification of the controlled facility in technological processes. Power engineering equipment and ICT. Application of the IEC, EN and IEEE standards for power system control. Types and modes of control with particular components in power plants. Cost – Benefit Analysis for application of the control system type. Control point location. Local control. Off-site control. Signalization and communications of the controlled units and high-voltage equipment with control centers. Case studies and applications of the control systems with different types of power facilities (thermal, hydro, renewable). Simulation and analysis of the some typical control loops: flow regulation, temperature, pressure, RPM, voltage, excitation current, active and reactive power. Hardware and software application for the analysis of the unit control. Dynamic characteristics of the units. Experimental verification of the operational unit’ performances and appropriate equipment. Rehabilitation of the control systems and introducing and developing a modern control systems. Power system operation in a new technological and market environment.
