Fundamentals of MIMO Wireless Communication

By Prof. Suvra Sekhar Das   |   IIT Kharagpur
This course introduces the computational aspects of the power system analysis. The thrust of this course is description of the computer algorithms for analysis of any general power transmission system. Starting with load flow analysis, which is essentially the backbone of any power system analysis tool, this course further deals with computer algorithms for contingence analysis, state estimation and phase domain fault analysis method of any general power transmission system.
