Syllabus
Prerequisites: Notions of electrical networks, transformers and rotating machines acquired in the courses of electrical engineering and electrical machines
Target skills and knowledge: Structure of the power system with particular focus on the medium and low voltage distribution systems.
Expectations skills are:
- knowledge of the main management methods of a three-phase electrical system
- ability to perform a general sizing of overhead and cable networks
- ability to set up studie of short-circuit regimes of electricity distribution networks for the selection and coordination of protections
Examination methods: Possibility of partial written tests during the course and/or final written test (both theory and practice). In case, oral examination on the theory.
The tests consist for 2/3 solution of numerical exercises (calculation of line parameters, cable sizing, calculation of short-circuit currents, reactive compensation) and for 1/3 written theory questions.
Assessment criteria: The assessment will be based on the degree of comprehension reached by the student of the various topics, ability of performing some basic network computations and methodology of application of the theoretical concepts.
Course unit contents: Equivalent models of the main network elements and definitions of the main line parameters (per unit length resistance, inductance and capacitance) for aerial conductors and cables. Electrical and thermal sizing of different types of lines (ac, dc, single-phase, three-phase). Cable lines: classification, , insulation, sheaths and screens, thermal model, ampacity, adiabatic model, protections. The Ferranti's effect. Transformers in the power system. The method of symmetrical components and sequence theory. Application to the study of short-circuit regimes in three-phase symmetrical networks subject to symmetrical and asymmetrical faults and interruptions. Sequence behaviour and calculation of the sequence network parameters (positive, negative and zero sequence) of the main network elements. Transient currents in R-L networks and simplified application to three-phase systems. Effects of electric currents on the human body. Electrical substations and their components. Neutral grounding in electric distribution networks. The distribution network in low voltage: TT, TN, IT and safety analysis. Industrial power systems management. User interface to the supply network. Power system protections. Power factor correction issues. Application examples of design and assessment of low and medium voltage networks under normal and emergency (faulted) operating conditions.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Classroom lectures. About 10 lecturers are devoted to the guided solution of problems of sizing and calculation of short-circuit currents.

Seminars are foreseen from external professionals
Additional notes about suggested reading: The textbook contains all the information required for the exam. Any presentations used for in-depth study are provided to students
