Course content
Many sophisticated power equipments are practically used in the actual bulk power transmission systems. For example, high voltage equipment such as large scale generator, transformer, gas insulated switchgear (GIS), ZnO surge arrestor, transmission line, power cable and so on.
In addition, electromagnetic analysis such as surge analysis is very important in the insulation design for rational operation of electric power system. Those excellent technologies are introduced in the lecture, thinking the collaboration with conventional system and sustainable new energy system in the future system.
Purpose of class
This course aims to increase student's understanding of the electric power system by providing you with practical knowledge that you can use as you work in or with this important industry, and to get the basic knowledge abour the bulk power transmission system.
Students can get the basic knowledge about the concept of an inulation coordination in power network, which is important to increase the reliability and to reduce the cost of the next generation power system.
Goals and objectives
  1. Expert knowledge of sophisticated power system
  2. Expert knowledge of surge generation
  3. Expert knowledge of surge protection
  4. Future colaboration of power systems and networks
