 Description of courses

  • ELEC 4174/5174-3 Power Electronic Systems Topics to be covered include: power electronics fundamentals and applications in power systems; uncontrolled, semi-controlled and fully controlled power semiconductors; converter’s design and control.  
  • ELEC 4184/5184-3 Power Systems Analysis Topics to be covered include: complex power; per-unit quantities; modeling of generators, transformers and transmission lines; power flow problem; economic dispatch; faults and sequence networks; and an introduction to power system protection and dynamics.
  • ELEC 5755-3 Renewable Energy Systems Topics to be covered include: wind and solar power generation, methods of interconnection renewable energy sources, current technologies, and system economics.
  • ELEC 5294-3 Advanced Power Electronics Topics to be covered include: three-phase diode/thyristor bridge rectifiers; three-phase voltage source converters; matrix converters; FACTS devices; Custom Power devices; converter’s design, control and modulation strategies.
  • ELEC 5194-3 Power Systems Operation and Control This course introduces the student to various operational strategies the power industry uses today to operate the power system. Topics to be covered include: economic dispatch, unit commitment, optimal power flow (linear and nonlinear), transmission congestion, control areas, state estimation, and an introduction to power markets.
  • ELEC 4444/5444-1 Power Systems Laboratory This lab introduces the student to modern computational tools used in power system analysis. Algorithms to solve the "power flow problem," the "economic dispatch problem," and the "optimal power flow problem" are discussed and implemented in the Matlab-Simulink mathematical analysis software package.
  • ELEC/MECH 3030-3 Electric Circuits and Systems This basic electrical engineering course is for non-majors (does not apply to BSEE degree). Students study circuit analysis, transformers, electric motors, and simple electronic circuits (diodes and transistors).
