The subject introduces electrification system physical and economical characteristics and models. It deals with modes optimization, active and reactive power control in isolated and interconnected systems, extraordinary states solving and reliability evaluation. It describes also the current situation of the energy market liberalization and sources operation in it.


Requirements to obtain the assessment are exercises attendance and a term thesis elaborating.

Successful exam passing is determined in the Study and Examination Code of CTU in Prague.
