SITizens Learning Credits


This module provides participants with in-depth knowledge, skills and competency in the modelling, simulation and data analysis of electrical power systems. This is essential for the effective, safe and stable operation of modern utility grid with growing penetration of renewables, distributed energy resources and power electronic control devices. Transient simulation and analysis of power system networks of transmission lines, cables, circuit breakers, transformers, electrical machines and power converters are emphasized. Solid-state power system stability compensating devices and technologies are also introduced. The course is delivered in a technology-enable learning mode using industry-standard electromagnetic transient simulation software such as PSCAD.

Frequently Asked Questions

What coding skills do I need for this module?

No specific skills are required for this module. A basic engineering degree and relevant working experience are sufficient to pick up the knowledge and skills in modelling, simulation and analysis of electrical power systems.

How are the SIT postgraduate EPE modules different from other postgraduate courses in power engineering offered elsewhere?

Other postgraduate courses offered elsewhere usually focus primarily on theories of power engineering, targeted at research-intensive outcomes. Our applied learning and training instead places equal emphasis on theoretical knowledge and practical training for industries in using state-of-the-art simulation and analysis tools. The curriculum is developed in alignment with the National Energy Competency Framework launched by EMA in June 2015.

What Industry Experts Say?

“Applying power system analysis techniques to industrial and commercial power systems
As computer technology has advanced, so has the complexity of industrial and commercial power systems. These power systems have grown in recent decades with capacities far exceeding that of a small electric utility system. Today’s intensely competitive business environment forces plant or building management personnel to be very aware of the total owning cost of the power distribution system. Therefore, they demand assurances of maximum return on all capital investments in the power system. The use of digital computers makes it possible to study the performance of proposed and actual systems under many operating conditions. Answers to many questions regarding impact of expansion on the system, short-circuit capacity, stability, load distribution, etc., can be intelligently and economically obtained.”
