5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

The discipline consists of a set of recourses. Each is organized into topical parts and chapters in an attempt to provide comprehensive coverage of the generation, transformation, transmission, distribution, and utilization of electric power and energy as well as the modeling, analysis, planning, design, monitoring, and control of electric power systems. The individual topics are different from most technical publications. They are not journal-type articles nor are they textbooks in nature. They are intended to be tutorials or overviews providing ready access to needed information while at the same time providing sufficient references for more in-depth coverage of the topic. This discipline is devoted to the subjects of power system protection, power system dynamics and stability, and power system operation and control.

The place of academic discipline in the structural and logical scheme of study according to the educational program
