Abstract

The design and implementation of a Virtual Electric Power Transmission Line Lab for undergraduate curricula is introduced in this paper. The aim of the virtual laboratory is to enhance learning and teach students the basis and characteristics of the power transmission line model under different conditions in a virtual interface before entering the field. The user can realize various tests, such as short circuit, no-load, load and fault tests, to develop an understanding of the model behaviors, effects of changes in the model parameters, load and connections. The proposed Virtual Electric Power Transmission Line Lab is developed in the Matlab graphical user interface (GUI) environment. The proposed virtual lab has been implemented in the Power Systems Lab taught at the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Karadeniz Technical University as part of the undergraduate curriculum. A survey of the students who took the lab course has been conducted, and the responses are included in this paper.
