Drive your career forward

Professional Certificate in
Smart Grids Integration and Modeling

What you will learn

  • Identify the impact of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) and smart energy demand on electrical power grids; and different tools and approaches to design a smart grid.
  • Apply optimal power flow (OPF) solutions to evaluate the performance of an electrical power system with integrated renewable energy sources.
  • Analyze intelligent electrical power system dynamics (frequency stability) to achieve active power balance, and identify control-room technologies for system-wide remote monitoring, protection and risk management of smart grid cyber security.
  • Simulate a 9-bus grid, with and without variable renewable resources.
  • Analyze and mitigate the impact of “intelligent” but common grid disturbances in electrical power systems.
