Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course students will have acquired an understanding of the structure of electric power supply networks and the physical principles of the equipment used in them, and will be able to apply and interpret the numerical models used in computational analyses of electric power supply networks. Students will also acquire a fundamental understanding of how CAE tools are applied to tackle practical problems in power supply systems. Specific skills taught include:
  - Functional principles of network modelling systems
  - Computing stationary and dynamic network processes
  - Numerical methods in electric power supply systems
