Welcome to Wide-Area Monitoring and Control of Smart Transmission Systems


Description: This course provides a detailed description on the simulation, stability analysis and control of power transmission systems using wide-area monitoring systems (WAMS). The content of the course covers simulation tools, measuring and data transfer, analytical methodologies to design novel power system stabilizers, etc.

The topics include:

  • Modeling and simulation tools for smart transmission systems
  • Introduction to the wide-area measuring and data transfer in power systems
  • Analysis of electromechanical oscillations in power systems based on phasor measurements
  • Design of the WAMS based power system stabilizers

Prerequisites: Background in power system stability dynamic and control, fundamental knowledge in control theory, and basic skills in simulation of power system for transient stability study.

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.
