|Description||This module deals with the technical and economic operation of modern power systems. The module sets the electricity supply system in the overall energy requirement context. The module addresses the significant technical issues of transmission control, frequency control and operations of distribution systems. The economic operation of the power system is investigated, from the centrally-directed management of economic dispatch to existing and emerging market structures. The module places emphasis on the interdependency of economic and technical aspects of the development and operation of modern power systems.||A brief description of the module.|
