ENEE20001 - Advanced Power System Analysis and Control

General Information

Unit Synopsis

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. 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. Online students are required to attend a residential school.

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).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 12-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 25 hours of study per week, making a total of 300 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. In-class Test(s) 0%
2. Online Test 20%
3. In-class Test(s) 40%
4. Portfolio 40%

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%).

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.

Source: Student survey
Feedback
Students prefer face to face teaching.
Recommendation
Academics are being recruited to allow this to happen.
Action Taken
The level of face-to-face teaching was improved over 2018 with an academic on Melbourne campus being heavily involved each week with the running of lectures and tutorials. Visits by the unit co-ordinator to Melbourne also greatly assisted with enhancing student learning.
Source: Student feedback via Moodle
Feedback
Students appreciate 'real world' learning and the focus on practical skills associated with this unit.
Recommendation
Keep the current focus on real world (authentic) projects and practical skills.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Student feedback via Moodle
Feedback
Students feel that having the unit co-ordinator in Melbourne would greatly assist with the running of the unit.
Recommendation
In Term 2 2019 this unit is being run with a unit co-ordinator based in Melbourne. Where possible unit co-ordinators should be based in Melbourne where the majority of students are.
Action Taken
Nil.
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.

Learning outcomes will be linked to Engineers Australia stage 1 competency standards for Professional Engineers.
