Course description and aims

This course focuses on operation and control technologies of an electric power system, on which modern society heavily depends, putting due emphasis on system technologies. Topics include control of active and reactive power, modeling of power apparatus, surge phenomena in a power system and analysis techniques for load flow and stability.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand basics on operation and control of an electric power system;
2) Understand various phenomena observed in an electric power system under normal and fault conditions;
3) Understand fundamental methods such as load flow and stability analyses for a power system.


frequency control, voltage control, economic load dispatch, load flow analysis, angle stability, cascaded outages, stabilizing control, overvoltage, surge, DC transmission.

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills
・Applied specialist skills on EEE

Class flow

1) Lectures are given based on the materials distributed through OCW-i. Students are required to make preparation and review with the materials.
2) Students must submit a report on exercise problems assigned in each class.
3) Solutions to the problems assigned in the previous class are explained at the beginning of each class.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.


Textbook is not required.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

1) All the materials used in a class can be found on OCW-i.
2) Reference
Sekine, Taiji, "Power System Engineering," Denki-Shoin;
Hasegawa, Jun, "Power System Engineering," IEEJ;
Hayashi, Izumi: "Power System," Shokoudoh;
