/Class Outline
Objective is to understand planning and operation of electric power systems. In the modern power systems there are millions of individual components connected together, working reliably enough for our modern life. On the other hand, various problems concerned with power system security are emerging due to rapid increase in renewable energy generations as well as to liberalization of power industry. This lecture is interested to understand those issues.
