IELE-3134 Distribution systems

This course concentrates on the planning, analysis and design of power distribution systems . It includes a presentation of basic concepts in distribution systems (equipment, typologies, primary and secondary network concepts) and characterization of electric demand. Distribution systems analysis tools (radial charge flow and short circuit analysis) are then introduced, together with the development of such systems’ protections coordination. Topics related to distribution systems planning are then addressed, starting with the forecast of electricity demand, and continuing with the philosophy of planning and analyzing the reliability of distribution systems. Sub-optimal problems are studied. It concludes with an overview of the regulatory and tariff framework for electricity distribution in Colombia.
