Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

[1]  Explain the concept of electrical power system components (generation, transmission, and distribution), various power generation systems and energy sources.

[2]  Analyze the basic principle of electrical system (single and three phase system) including power factor correction.

[3]  Analyse the characteristics of electric machine principles, including AC synchronous generator and transformer.

[4]  Analyse the characteristics and performance of electrical transmission line and distribution system.


This is an introductory course for students on fundamental knowledge of electrical power system. The students will be taught on the physics of electrical power system, which includes the theory  and analysis of electromagnetism, followed by power concepts & equations (single and three phase), power factor & power factor corrections, single and three-phase system and per-unit calculation. There will also topics on characteristics for static and rotating electric machine principles, including AC, DC, synchronous, induction motor and transformer. Furthermore, students will be introduced to the concepts on the electric power system network (generation, transmission and distribution) and various power generation system and energy sources. Students will also learn on basic characteristics and performance of electrical transmission line and distribution system.
