This course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of power systems structure, power generation and consumption, power generation and flow control, energy management, electricity markets and likely power systems’ future. The course starts with a brief review of general electrical concepts involved, continuing with power systems specifics such as power generation and consumption devices, generation and flow control and energy management. The last part of the course covers less technical areas of electricity markets and current plans for the future of the power systems. The first part of the course introduces basic components found in today's electric energy systems, such as: 1. Power generation and consumption devices (generators, motors, DC devices); 2. Power network hierarchical structure and protection ; 3. Control of these components for their efficient and reliable use; The principles underlying design, operations and control of these components are introduced using conversion fundamentals and basic electric circuit knowledge. The second part of this course introduces mathematical formulation of key algorithms used for steady state analysis and optimization. Examples of such algorithms are: 1. Alternating current (AC) power flow; 2. Direct current (DC) power flow; 3. DC and AC optimal power flows (DC/AC OPF);
