Computer Tools

This course uses MATLAB, a mathematical software tool, to assist in the analysis of power systems.  MATLAB is a matrix based software package, which makes it ideal for power system analysis problems.  The use of software is integrated into the examples and the homework problems.  The selected textbook contains a Power System Toolbox, containing a set of MATLAB files to help in typical power system analysis.  The toolbox allows the student to analyze and design power systems without having to write detailed programming.

The Power System Toolbox software modules are versatile, allowing some of the typical problems to be solved by several methods.  This enables students to investigate alternative solution techniques.  Futhermore, the modules are structured so that the user may mix them for other power system analyses.  The toolbox is provided on the accompanying CD-Rom found in the textbook.

MATLAB is one of the many software packages supported by the College of Engineering.  Students may access MATLAB either by using the CoE Computer Labs or by purchasing the MATLAB Student Version at the bookstores.  An introduction in the use of MATLAB is found in the appendixes of the textbook.

As software modules upgrades for the Power System Toolbox become available, they will be posted here.  Check back throughout the semester to maintain the most current tools!
