General Information

Overview

In this unit, you will learn to work both individually and in teams in the planning, analysis, and design of power systems and their associated control systems using state-of-the-art methods. You will design power systems to incorporate the growing penetration of renewable energy sources. In order to do this, you will develop advanced skills to effectively design, analyse, and augment power systems to maximise reliability, security, and sustainability. Upon successful completion of this unit, you will be able to analyse systems incorporating renewable energy sources both dynamically and in steady-state using industry-standard software such as Power System Simulator for Engineering (PSSE). You will be able to tune control systems to satisfy Australian network standards and you will become competent to meet the challenges and opportunities of 21st-century power systems as they continue to evolve. You will apply skills in ENEE20001 to work towards the United Nations sustainable development goal. Online students are required to attend a residential school.

Pre-requisites or Co-requisites

ENEE14005 Capstone Power and Control Design is an Anti-Requisite for this unit.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:

Assessment Overview

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Student feedback via Moodle

Feedback

Students appreciate 'real world' learning and the focus on practical skills associated with this unit for industrial application.

Recommendation

Keep the current focus on real world (authentic) projects and practical skills.

Feedback from Student feedback via Moodle

Feedback

Students feel that having the unit coordinator in Melbourne would greatly assist with the running of the unit.

Recommendation

In Term 1 2021, this unit is being run with a unit coordinator based in Melbourne. Where possible, the unit coordinator should be based in Melbourne where the majority of students are. The students can communicate frequently as well as face-to-face.

Feedback from Student feedback via Moodle

Feedback

Students are happy with the current trend of teaching (face-to-face or online).

Recommendation

Keep continue the current trend of teaching as students are happy.

Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Conduct load-flow and fault analyses of complex power systems in order to augment the system to optimise power flows and voltage profiles
  2. Model advanced dynamics of complex power systems to determine transient stability limits
  3. Perform dynamic stability analysis of complex power systems in order to improve power system damping
  4. Model renewable power plants in steady-state and transient situations to quantify their impact on system security
  5. Discuss the impact of power system augmentations on economic, social, and environmental sustainability
  6. Work autonomously and in teams on complex power engineering projects including providing leadership
  7. Document and communicate professional engineering information including computer-based simulations and drawings using appropriate electrical engineering standards, terminology, and symbols.
