A complex power system consists of a variety of electrical components, including generators, transmission lines, transformers, loads, battery storage systems, and power electronics devices. In this presentation, the development of a mathematical model and a computer simulation framework for a complex power system will be discussed.


Tyrone Fernando, senior member of IEEE, obtained his bachelor of engineering with honors and the degree of doctor of philosophy from the University of Melbourne in 1990 and 1996 respectively. In 1996 he joined the School of Electrical Electronic and Computer Engineering (EECE), University of Western Australia, where he is currently a Professor and also the Director of Power and Clean Energy (PACE) research group (http://pace.ee.uwa.edu.au). He was the Associate Head of EECE in 2008 and Deputy Head of EECE in 2009 and 2010. His research interests are in power systems, renewable energy and state estimation. Hehas served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine and also as Guest Editor for the journal of Optimal Control Applications and Methods. He is currently an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems–II and also IEEE Access.
