This first module on power systems introduces the components which make up a power system. Single and three-phase basic concepts introduce popular analytical techniques for power system studies. Transformers are prominent components of the power system, and all their variants are studied, i.e. auto-transformers and tap changing transformers. At the heart of the generating units of most power stations are synchronous machines. Their equivalent circuit, real and reactive power control and two-axis machine model are considered. The components, modelling, voltage regulation, compensation, and transient behaviour of transmission lines are covered. Loads are also modelled for various components found in a typical power system.
