Abstract

Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) design and application requires knowledge of various mathematical and electrical engineering fundamentals. The fundamental theories are covered in lower level courses offered at the undergraduate level in a typical electrical engineering and energy related curriculum. Furthermore, laboratory equipment/device based courses help students to improve their practical skills. Since students find experimental, product development and group work related courses more engaging, they are motivated to enroll in such courses. This paper summarizes a PMU design and application course suitable for electrical engineering/renewable energy undergraduate and graduate students. The paper is aimed towards helping course developers who plan to develop similar courses in the future.
