Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. categorise the basic concepts of short-term planning of a power system

2. describe the following optimization problems: Economic dispatch, Optimal power flow, Thermal unit commitment, State estimation and Hydro unit commitment

3. compare the economical load distribution and optimal power flows for a default model of a power system in the computer programme

4. apply thermal and hydro unit commitment to the power system using computer program

5. create the objective function and the associated constraints for the optimisation problem for a hybrid power system
