DescriptionThis module deals with the analysis of modern power systems. The range of analysis tasks
encountered by an electrical power engineer is set in context with regard to the effective design,
optimisation and operation of the power system. The spectrum of system actions and responses is
used to structure the range of knowledge and associated analysis techniques studied. The module
emphasises the need to select the appropriate analysis tool and to deepen the skill and know-how
associated with these tools.
