EE 449 - Power System Analysis II

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
This course is a continuation of EE 447 , and provides students with a working knowledge of power system problems and computer techniques used to solve some of these problems. Topics covered include optimal dispatch of generation, symmetrical three-phase faults, symmetrical components, unsymmetrical faults, technical treatment of the general problem of power system stability and its relevance. (prereq: EE 3401 , EE 3720 )
