An Overview of Electric Power Systems Engineering presents the essence of an electrical power system from an engineering perspective, including the generation, transformation, transmission, and distribution of electrical energy.  Some time is devoted to the historical evolution of the US power grid, as well as a review of basic technical concepts and analytical methods. The hardware of power systems is described and the fundamentals of system operation and control will be discussed.

Participants can expect to…

  • acquire an informed perspective on the nature of electrical power systems
  • participate in a review of basic technical concepts and analytical methods
  • learn of the major hardware system components
  • an understanding of the most important system problems
  • learn about the "grid" (both "dumb" and "smart")



  • What is a power system?
  • Energy Sources and Conversion
  • Power System Components
  • Power System Operation and Control


TARGET AUDIENCE:  An Overview of Electric Power Systems Engineering is intended for engineers, scientists, technicians, and managers with a non-power background who wish to understand the fundamentals of power systems, and particularly for those whose technical specialty has applications within the power industry.
