ELE3804 Power Systems Protection
Modern society cannot function without a reliable supply of electricity. However, an electrical power system that is completely free from failure is neither economically justifiable nor technically feasible. A power system or some part of the power system will, under certain abnormal circumstances, become faulted and as a result cease to operate as intended. A protection system, in the event of a fault, is required to maintain safety of personnel and members of the public, minimize damage to the power system, minimize interruption of supply and help maintain quality of supply. This course will help students develop the skills needed to design and carry out performance analysis of protection systems.
