Unformatted text preview: Page 1 of 2 ECE 451 – Power System Analysis – Fall 2010 Syllabus, revision 3, 10/10/2010 Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, North Carolina State University Instructor; TA John W. Gajda, P.E. (Lecturer) E ­Mail *Office Hours Office/Ph Tue/Thurs: 4:20 PM – 5:20 PM, also after class if necessary No assigned office; Ph# 546 ­4697 EB2 Room 1228 or other location if necessary *Meetings with instructor at times other than scheduled office hours can be arranged by e ­mail. jwgajda@ncsu.edu Class Tue/Thurs: 5:20 pm – 6:35 pm EB2 Room 1228 Course Description Long ­distance transmission of electric power with emphasis on generator, line, and transformer modeling, per unit calculations, admittance and impedance modeling of components and systems, power ­flow studies and calculations, symmetrical and unsymmetrical fault calculations using symmetrical components. Applications of computer ­based methods to power ­system problems. Design project. Course Prerequisites ECE 305 (students without ECE305 must consult with the lecturer during the first week of class), which should have included coverage of the following prerequisite topics: 1. Steady ­state analysis of single ­phase and three ­phase circuits 2 Elements of transient analysis and rudimentary electromagnetic field theory 3. Principles of electric machines, transformers, and transmission lines 4. Per ­unit system and representations Course Restrictions Limited to electrical & computer engineering majors Computing This course will require the use of the Eos or Unity system. Required Text Power System Analysis, 1994, McGraw ­Hill Book Company, by John J. Grainger and William D. Stevenson, Jr. Homework Homework will be assigned on a roughly weekly basis. As this is a senior ­level engineering course, homework will not be graded, but students are reminded that without working the homework problems, ability to internalize necessary concepts will likely be difficult. Students are encouraged to collaborate sensibly on homework as needed. Quizzes and the final exam are closed ­book. Drop Deadlines Check the Academic Calendar for the last day to drop ECE 451. Lack of prerequisites is not grounds for dropping a course after the deadline. Page 2 of 2 ECE 451 – Power System Analysis – Fall 2010 Syllabus, revision 3, 10/10/2010 Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, North Carolina State University Tests Three (3) quizzes will be given throughout the semester on or about the dates indicated on the ECE 451 Lecture and Quiz Schedule, which will serve as a guide. The ECE 451 Quiz and Lecture Schedule will be posted online as soon as it is available. Please be aware that there will be occasional revisions regarding homework assignments, quiz schedule, final exam date/time, etc. Revisions will be announced in class. Grading A weighted ­average letter grade, consistent with NC State University’s guidelines, will be calculated on the following basis: Tests (3) 50 % (this consists of two test grades; the lowest test grade of the three will be thrown out) Comprehensive Final 30 % Design Project 20 % Total 100 % Policy on Absences Unexcused absences for tests, homework, or final exam will receive a grade of zero. Scheduled absences (approved one week or more in advance) and unscheduled absences (due to illness) must be documented in writing to the instructor; the overall average will be based on the remaining grades. There will be no makeup exams, homework, or design projects. Reading Assignments The reading assignments are given in the ECE 451 Quiz and Lecture Schedule. Reading the assignments before coming to the lectures can be very helpful. Course Policies and Procedures 1. Attendance is expected at each lecture of this course. 2. Students will be expected to adhere to the guidelines for academic integrity as outlined in the NC State University Code of Student Conduct. Cheating or plagiarism will be reported and will result in loss of credit for the test or the assignment in question or for the entire course. 3. A student with a disability that may affect his/her participation in the activities of this class should notify the instructor at the beginning of the semester so that proper accommodations can be made. 4. Each student may be required to use a general ­purpose analysis computer program for either power flow or fault analysis and design of a representative electric ­power transmission network. ...
