• Welcome to Introduction to Voltage Stability of Electric Power Systems


    The course will provide training and education on the subject of Voltage Stability analysis.
    The PhD course will include basic knowledge of power transfer limitations in DC and AC systems, the effect of reactive compensation, generator reactive support, and load dynamics and basic concepts of voltage stability monitoring, control and protection.
    The main topics are as follows:
     Overview of power system stability and classification
     Basics of stability theory
     Voltage stability and maximum power transfer
     Reactive generation and reactive power limits. Immediate loss of stability
     Fast and slow response including load dynamics.
     Modelling and response of Load Tap Changers
     Multi-time scale and quasi steady state simulation
     Voltage Stability Monitoring and Countermeasures

    Prerequisites: General knowledge in electrical AC circuits and electrical power engineering, preferably background at graduate level in power systems. Exercises involve Matlab.

    Important information concerning PhD courses 
    We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
