Reliability and Security of Power Systems
- Department of Electrical Power Engineering
The aim of the subject is acquiring basic knowledge of security and reliability of power electrical systems based on the deterministic and mainly probabilistic analysis. After the introductory summarisation and extension of the mathematical tools for probabilistic and statistic calculations, the methodology of evaluation of the reliability of the systems is mainly discussed starting from the reliability of its particular elements in various operation regimes. Attention is also paid to problems of maintenance and mathematical simulation of the destructive tests.
