## General Description

The Aerial Line Model Application, "AEL-AE1A", has been designed by EDIBON to study the basics concept of power systems in the field of the power generation, transmission, distribution and load consumption.

The "AEL-AE1A" consists of a series of modules that represent, in a reduced scale, a real power system.

Through these modules, the student will understand the main concepts of transport lines: drop voltages, reactive energy compensation, measurement of currents, voltages, active and reactive power, power losses at the transmission lines, etc.

In order to simulate the energy transport, the student will work with the transmission line simulation module. This module represents basic concepts of the electric energy high-voltage three-phase transmission lines operation. It simulates a value modifying concentrated parameter line that allows different configurations and consists of three conductor line (R, S, T) and a Neutral or return line (N).

Each one of the phases is represented following the concentrated parameters theoretical model, through a resistance series association and inductances, along with a parallel association between each one of them in a capacitance effect.

In addition, this unit includes a three phase power supply to simulate power generation. On the other hand, three-phase resistive, inductive and capacitive load modules are included to simulate different energy consumption profiles to analyze the load effect in the transmission line.
