- The topic of voltage disturbances and quality of electric power supply, positioned in the general context of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
- Types and characteristics of the main disturbances, disturbance sources, methods of measurement and evaluation, propagation mechanisms, adverse effects, immunity
- Modelling and calculation of electrical power networks (public or industrial) and electrical installations in disturbed operation
- Technical solutions to solve power quality problems
At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
In consideration of the reference table AA of the program "master in electrical engineering ", this course contributes to the development, to the acquisition and to the evaluation of the following experiences of learning:
- Reliability and continuity of power supply
- Rapid changes of the load; voltage fluctuations and frequency deviations
- Voltage distortion, harmonics, transients and interharmonics (in the frequency range from 0 to 150 kHz)
- Unsymmetrical three-phase systems (voltage unbalance)
- Voltage dips and short interruptions
- Voltage swells and overvoltages
- For each family of studied phenomena: sources and disturbances generating mechanisms, modelling, special techniques of measurement and evaluation, propagation of disturbances in the network, adverse effects, immunity of sensitive loads, choice of technological solutions (at the source, in the network or at the level of disturbed installations).
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.- The course consists of lectures that aim to describe the general context, key concepts, methods of calculation and evaluation as well as give and discuss some specific technological information.
- Practical sessions (supervised exercise sessions) are organized. These exercises can make use of dedicated software tools
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Students are assessed during an oral examination comprising:
- The resolution of a problem, sketching a realistic but inevitably simplified situation compared to a complex real industrial case (numerical exercise, aiming primarily to assess understanding phenomena, mastering modelling and computational techniques, together with the fast quantified assessment of a situation)
- A discussion realizing a broad sweep of the whole matter, starting from relatively general questions or typical industrial case studies.
Homework is proposed during the semester and is evaluated. It counts for half of the points of 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.
According to the opportunities and practical availability, the course can be completed by a technical visit and / or seminars given by experts from industry
