Prerequisite
Basic understanding of structure of the power system and power system analysis.
Rationale
Demand of electrical energy is increasing day by day due to improvement in the life style of the people in particular and development of the countries in general. On the other hand, conventional sources of power generation are limited. Under this scenario, the power system network operates in a stressed condition. Effective management of generation, transmission and distribution of electrical power is necessary for optimal system operation, for loss minimization and to avoid the unwanted power cuts. This subject deals with the fundamentals for effective operation and control of the power system.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand the techniques to control power flows, frequency and voltage.
2. Explore the significance of power system restructuring.
3. Perform system state estimation and explore its importance.
4. Learn the power system security and its application as a system operator.
5. Carry out load forecasting using available methods.

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 be submitted to GTU.
