Symmetrical Components for Three Phase Power Analysis

Working with Asymmetrical 3 Phase Quantities using Symmetrical Components | taught by Graham Van Brunt

Course description

The method of symmetrical components is used to simplify asymmetrical three phase voltages and current analysis by converting the unbalanced system into two sets of balanced phasors and a set of single-phase phasors, or symmetrical components. These sets of phasors are called the positive, negative, and zero sequence components.

An understanding of this method is essential for the understanding of fault analysis and modern day protection schemes. This course will provide you with the knowledge to comprehend the concept and how it is applied.
