Graduate Certificate in Power Systems Engineering
The objective of the certificate in Power Systems Engineering is to provide students with the knowledge to be involved with the technology advancements and future developments in power generation, controls, and management as well as with alternate and new energy resources. This program will prepare engineers to work in the power and energy industry. Academic programs in energy technology and management are needed to prepare the future workforce for the energy and power industry as more than fifty percent of the workforce in the power industry is retiring during this decade. At the same time, developing new, clean, and more efficient energy resources and technologies is of global significance.
Additionally, it fits students who are interested in technology advancements and future developments in the power generation, control, and management as well as alternate and new resources.
Power system steady-state analysis of power system networks, particularly real and reactive power flows under normal conditions and current flows under faulty conditions. Symmetrical components and digital solutions are emphasized.
Computer methods applied to power systems and digital computer techniques proven successful in the solution of power system problems, particularly in the electric utility industry. Emphasis on short-circuit, load flow, and transient stability problems. Matrix sparsity is considered.
Transient performance of power systems with lumped properties, interruption of arcs, restriking voltage, re-ignition inertia effects, switching of rotational systems, magnetic saturation in stationary networks, harmonic oscillations, saturated systems, transient performance of synchronous machines.
Protection of power systems
Theoretical developments and computer methods in determining economic operation within the boundaries of a given steam-electric operating area. Energy accounting control and economic theories for interconnected steam and hydroelectric power systems.
