Electrical Power Transmission

Electrical Power Transmission

Catalog Number:

10605124

Credits:

3.00

Description:

This course covers the basic principles of high-voltage transmission of electrical energy. Students are introduced to the concepts of active, reactive, and apparent power in electric power technology. Basic properties of single and three phase transformers and their importance to power transmission are discussed. The behavior of ideal and practical (or non-ideal) transformers are used as a building block to explain the electrical function of a transformer in many transmission circuits. Basic mechanical (supporting structures, line sag, galloping and the effect of weather) and electrical (like corona, pollution, insulation, lightning) requirements that must be met for successful power transmission over large distances are discussed. Approximately 50% of the course is spent in the laboratory working with equipment that simulates power transmission.
