  24. Course Description: A graduate course intended to familiarize students with the dynamics, control and protection of electrical power systems.

  25. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course: Replacing Selected Topics with Permanent number; already listed in program
  26. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service? There is a strong demand from both on campus graduate students and remote students employed in this area. Average class size: 20 students.
  27. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times? Yes, 3 or more times
  28. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.) A Ph.D. degree and research experience in power system dynamics and control are required to teach this course.
  29. Objectives: The objectives of the course is to examine the short-term behavior of the power systems when subject to faults and disturbances, to teach students analytical methods to understand the behavior, to teach students to design and operate interconnected electrical systems, and to introduce appropriate tools for power system dynamic simulation, analysis and control.
  30. Learning Outcomes: 1. Students are able to apply symmetrical component theory for computing at power system abnormal conditions.

    2. Students learn Park's transformation theory for synchronous generator dynamic modelling and understand machine's equivalent models at sub-transients, transients and steady-state.

    3. Students learn electromechanical dynamic system behavior and its relation to frequency response in power systems.

    4. Students learn frequency control and voltage control in power systems.

    5. Students are able to use linear system analysis tools to analyze system behavior.

  31. Major Topics: Generator modeling

    Symmetrical component theory and fault analysis

    Protection systems

    Interconnected power system control

    Power system stability

  36. Attendance Policy: Course Attendance at First Class Meeting Policy for Graduate Students: For structured courses, 6000 and above, the College/Campus Dean will set the first-day class attendance requirement. Check with the College for specific information. This policy is not applicable to courses in the following categories: Educational Outreach, Open University (TV), FEEDS Program, Community Experiential Learning (CEL), Cooperative Education Training, and courses that do not have regularly scheduled meeting days/times (such as, directed reading/research or study, individual research, thesis, dissertation, internship, practica, etc.). Students are responsible for dropping undesired courses in these categories by the 5th day of classes to avoid fee liability and academic penalty. (See USF Regulation Registration - 4.0101,

    Attendance Policy for the Observance of Religious Days by Students: In accordance with Sections 1006.53 and 1001.74(10)(g) Florida Statutes and Board of Governors Regulation 6C-6.0115, the University of South Florida (University/USF) has established the following policy regarding religious observances: (

    In the event of an emergency, it may be necessary for USF to suspend normal operations. During this time, USF may opt to continue delivery of instruction through methods that include but are not limited to: Blackboard, Elluminate, Skype, and email messaging and/or an alternate schedule. Its the responsibility of the student to monitor Blackboard site for each class for course specific communication, and the main USF, College, and department websites, emails, and MoBull messages for important general information.
