Abstract:

This paper explains the experiments developed in the laboratory to teach undergraduate students the different aspects of power system operation and control. Simulation software are used in most of the colleges to teach different aspects of power system. Students feel difficult to understand the power system behavior in physical sense. This paper describes a model power system built in the Electrical Engineering Department of Amrita School of Engineering, Coimbatore. The model consists of two bus system connected by two parallel transmission lines. The power flow in the transmission line is controlled by varying voltage magnitude, line reactance, passive and active series compensation.
