IEEE Power & Energy Society Technical Webinar Series
Basics of Power System Dynamics
April 14, 2015 2:00 pm eastern
Presented by Peter W. Sauer
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
This talk will describe the various time scales associated with power system dynamics and the fundamental phases of dynamic response in both electrical and mechanical systems that are relevant to operations. The two control problems for voltage magnitude and frequency will be presented in the context of mathematical models and applications in the time scales of interest.
Electric power engineers in utilities, government, manufacturers, and universities will benefit from this presentation.
Pete Sauer obtained his BSEE from UMR in 1969. He was the electrical engineer on a design assistance team for 4 years at HQ TAC, Langley AFB, Virginia. He then obtained the MS and Ph.D degrees from Purdue University. He has been on the faculty at The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign since 1977. Pete is a co-author of the text book “Power System Dynamics and Stability”. He was a co-founder of PowerWorld Corporation and the Power System Engineering Research Center (PSERC). He is a registered Professional Engineer in Virginia and Illinois, a Fellow of the IEEE, the recipient of the 2014 Prabha S. Kundur Award and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering. He is currently the Grainger Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering at Illinois.
