Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes reallife case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. Power system loads continue to grow in size and complexity. Reliability expectations continue to rise. Power systems themselves become larger and more complex in response to growing load and customer expectations. Indeed, power systems have become more difficult to analyze and operate. Recent power system blackouts have heightened the concern for power system security and, therefore, reliability. Major blackouts of electric power systems in which many customers are left without power are rare events. However, the effects of blackouts, for instance, can be catastrophic. It has been observed that protective system failures are a contributing factor in a large proportion of these blackouts during system disturbances. Nowadays, power systems are operating with lower and lower security margins. This is due to the prioritization of the electricity market deregulation, the load consumption increase, the difficulties to build new facilities such as transmission lines and large power plants, etc.Consequently, the vulnerability of power systems becomes a very important issue and the probability of large blackout tends to increase, as confirmed by the various incidents experienced in the past. Therefore, mastering the knowledge of different topics related to blackout inception and power system instability has become essential for researches and engineers involved in power system planning, operation and control. This course is designed to help power system professionals, planners and engineers gain ground on the power system blackout and restoration. This course provides an up-to-date description of the restoration methodologies and implementation strategies practiced internationally. Participants will learn how to identify precursors for blackouts and will practice the steps necessary to prevent them from occurring. The course will focus on mechanisms of blackouts, instability phenomena, modelling and analysis tools, preventive and curative measures and finally service restoration. link to course overview PDF
