Bachelor of Engineering with (Honours) in Electrical/electronics Engineering aims to give the students an introductory working knowledge of modern electric power systems and the key issues in the operation of these systems. The programme concentrates on the development of a clear understanding of the philosophy of modern power system operation, and the systems used for large-scale generation, transmission and distribution of electric power. Upon completion of this programme, students will be able to analyse, model, and predict the performance of systems and devices including single-phase and three-phase systems, transformers, transmission and distribution networks that make up an electric power system. Past and current practices, as well as trends in the operation of modern power systems will be covered. New requirements imposed by deregulation, open access, and market competition are discussed.
