6. Policies and assessment process of the academic discipline

Assessment methods and rating system of learning results assessment

Assessment by discipline is carried out in two modules. The first module: "Methods of analysis of steady-state modes" "Methods of analysis of transient modes". Maximum number of points: 41. The second module: "Fundamentals of the theory of stability of power systems", "Mathematical foundations of the theory of reliability of energy systems", "Methods of solving optimization problems of power". Maximum number of points: 34. Each module includes: successful completion and defense of laboratory work, development of topics for self-study, test control.
