2110005 - Elements of Electrical Engineering


This subject is oriented towards the study of Generation, Distribution and Transmission of Electricity and the understanding of Power Factor.

Course Outcome

This subject is focused on getting the student acquainted with the basic power system engineering which includes generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, different substations used and transmission line fundamentals.

After learning this course, the student should be able to:

  1. Understand electric power generation, transmission and distribution.
  2. Understand different power stations and transmission line performance parameters along with mechanical considerations for transmission line.
  3. Understand power factor fundamentals, methods to improve the same and solve problems based on it.
  4. Understand various types of sub stations used in electrical network.
  5. Understand the importance of neutral grounding.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
