ENEE13021 - Power System Analysis and Design

General Information

Unit Synopsis

On the satisfactory completion of this unit, you will be able to work both individually and in-team to model, analyse and investigate design and operation options for electrical power networks to meet community service requirements. You will be able to analyse the steady-state performance of power systems, perform both symmetrical and unsymmetrical fault calculations, and conduct stability analysis of power systems. You will be using the power systems simulation software Power World Simulator or equivalent to simulate different scenarios in the power network. As such, you will articulate the process of updating and maintaining power network assets to meet most safety, reliability, and quality requirements for both present and future.

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Project (applied) 15%
2. Written Assessment 30%
3. Online Quiz(zes) 20%
4. Online Test 35%

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%).

Unit learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  1. Calculate fault currents under different scenarios and discuss the selection of appropriate protection schemes
  2. Solve power flow problems and appreciate the relevance of such studies in power system planning and operation
  3. Analyse power system performance in both balanced and unbalanced modes of operation by using appropriate software packages
  4. Investigate power angle stability for both single-machine and multimachine power systems
  5. Work both collaboratively and autonomously to analyse and solve problems
  6. Communicate effectively using power systems terminology, symbols and diagrams to present design documents, solutions, and calculations.
