1 U I ECE524 Lecture 1 What Are Electromagnetic Transients? Power systems normally in steady-state » Or Quasi-steady-state Allows use of RMS phasors Switching, operations, faults, lightning, » Response frequencies from DC to MHz » Generally dies out rapidly (higher freq Introduction Spring 2012 1 » Generally dies out rapidly (higher freq.) Large voltage and currents are possible RLC response to change in voltage or current U I ECE524 Lecture 1 Analyzing Transients Understand the transient you want to model Good data to form detailed models Mathematical model of the system Solve coupled differential equations » Hand calculations in the LaPlace domain Introduction Spring 2012 2 » Hand calculations in the time domain » Time domain numerical circuit simulation » Frequency domain simulation
