Due to the COVID19 crisis, the information below is subject to change,
in particular that concerning the teaching mode (presential, distance or in a comodal or hybrid format).

English
Prerequisites
Students must have the following skills: knowledge and practical application of the theory of electrical circuits and electromechanical converters, as covered in the courses LELEC1370 and LELEC1310
Main themes
 Generalities about the generation, transmission, distribution, storage and enduse of electric power and their respective developments,
 Structure and architectures of electric power systems ,
 Modelling and calculation of electric power systems in steady state and fault conditions ( short circuit )
 Questions related to the planning and operation of electric power systems (frequency and power control, voltage control, protection, ... )
 Introduction to Smart Grids
Aims
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :  
1 
In view of the LO frame of reference of the "Master Electrical Engineering", this course contributes to the development, acquisition and evaluation of the following learning outcomes:
1. Architecture of electrical systems:
4. Design and operation of power systems:

Content
 Electricity as energy carrier, architecture of power systems, voltage systems (continuous alternating ¬) per unit system, component systems (Fortescue, Clarke),
 Modelling: threephase transformers, transmission and distribution links (lines, cables), generators (steadystate, operating range, excitation systems, models for calculating short circuits currents),
 Power Flow in a meshed power network, state estimator,
 Voltage control,
 Frequency and power control, tertiary control of electricity generation, notions of managing a set of generation units
 Electrical power systems planning concepts
 Unbalanced and faulty operation (short circuit), power grids protections
Teaching methods
Due to the COVID19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.
 Lectures
 Practical sessions (supervised exercise sessions).
 Project type exercise to be performed by groups of two students, based on the use of software for calculating and analyzing networks. (This exercise is evaluated and taken into account in the final evaluation grade.)
Evaluation methods
Due to the COVID19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.
Students are assessed during a written and/or oral examination on both the theory and concepts and the discussion of practical situations (practical industrial case study, numerical exercises).A small project is proposed during the semester and is evaluated. It counts for a quarter of the points in the final grade, provided that the student has obtained at least 50% of the points for the exam.
In case the student does not obtain at least 50% of the points for the exam, the final grade is equal to the grade obtained for the exam.
See the Moodle platform for more details.
N.B. Depending on the health situation, the exam could be a remote one.
Other information
According to the opportunities and practical availability, the course can be completed by a technical visit (eg, visiting the training center ELIA, Belgian transmission high voltage grid operator, and the national dispatching.)

Evaluation methods
Students are assessed during an oral examination on both the theory and concepts and the discussion of practical situations (practical industrial case study, numerical exercises).
By default, the exam is held in person. Nevertheless, it can be organized remotely e.g. over the Teams platform:
 for all students, if the health situation requires it,
 for students who may argue, prior to the exam, that they are unable to participate on site. This has to be certified by a quarantine certificate or a "return form" from the SPF Foreign Affairs.
