From 10.07.2017 to 15.07.2017, Conducted by Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur.  Under National Mission on Education through ICT (MHRD, Govt of INDIA)


Electricity is the third most important commodity, next only to Air and water for survival of human beings. The course on Electric Power System is a very important course in an electrical engineering curriculum on all aspects of Electricity right from Generation to utilization. Every graduate in broad area of Electrical Engineering needs to have a detailed exposure to (a) Elements of Power System (b) Importance of Renewables and (c) Importance of ICT in reliable operation of Power System.



Electrical Power System is a core course for any undergraduate programme in Electrical Engineering. It is expected to be the first course on this topic and is typically meant for participants who already have some introductory knowledge of Electric Circuits, Electric Machines and Control Systems. The course shall cover the basic foundations of Power System Analysis, Which can be used to assess effective Electric Power Delivery in practice. An awareness of available software tools for the purpose. Need for renewable energy resources will also be brought out. Participants are exposed to usefulness of employing ICT in developing smart grids. Through this course a participant is expected to be able to learn to properly identify as to what comprises an Electric Power System, examine its inherent complexity and explore different ways to develop an algorithmic solution by analyzing the various alternatives to finally develop a good practical solution that is supported by logical and theoretical justification.



Participants pursuing this course should be able to:

  1. Identify as to what Comprises a Power System
  2. Realize the need for Renewable Energy Sources for Electric Power Supply.
  3. Become aware of usefulness of ICT in reliable operation of Electric Power System.
  4. Be able to carry out all essential analyses necessary to have reliable operation of Electric Power System.
