purpose of ECE 472 is to introduce to students the subject of Power System
Protection and Power System Stability.
course will start with an introduction to the Power System Protection and
proceeds with describing philosophies utilized for protection of a modern
power system. Topics such as operating principles of electromagnetic
attraction and induction relays will be followed by discussion of operating
principles of existing schemes which are practiced by the relay engineer.
of protection schemes to components of the power system such as transformers,
buses, transmission lines, generators, reactors, capacitors, and motors
will be covered in this course. New trends in specific areas of computer
relaying and adaptive protection will be discussed.
topic of Power System Stability will be introduced by describing the
stability phenomenon. The proceeding lectures will concentrate on the low
frequency oscillations of a turbine-generator shaft in the range of a few
tenths of a hertz up to a few hertz. The equal-area criterion, which is the
foundation of work in the area of power system stability, will be covered.
The generalization of the equal-area criterion to a multi-machine power
system, and the structure of commercially available transient stability
programs will be reviewed.
