The course introduces particular topics concerning transmission and distribution systems, mainly load flow solutions, specific aspects of system steady states and possibilities to control these states. The course also deals with synchronous generators characteristics in different operational states.

Course outlines:

1. Load flow calculation in ES
2. Optimal generation power dividing in ES
3. Current carrying capacity of overhead power lines
4. Electric-magnetic field of overhead power lines
5. Active and reactive power flows control in ES
6. FACTS systems in power systems ? principles
7. FACTS systems in power systems ? applications for control in ES
8. Phase-shifting transformers, HVDC transmission in ES
9. Overhead lines mechanics
10. Electric-magnetic couplings in synchronous machines
11. Synchronous machine operational states
12. Electric-magnetic phenomena in ES
13. Electric-mechanic phenomena in ES
14. Reserve
