What you'll learn

  1. Identify the impact of variable renewable energy sources (VRES) and smart energy demand on electrical power grids,
  2. Identify different tools and approaches to design a smart grid,
  3. Apply optimal power flow (OPF) solutions to evaluate the performance of an electrical power system with integrated renewable energy sources,
  4. Analyze intelligent electrical power system dynamics (frequency stability) to achieve active power balance, and
  5. Identify control-room technologies for system-wide remote monitoring, protection and risk management of smart grid cyber security.
  6. Simulate a 9-bus grid, with and without variable renewable resources,
  7. Analyze the impact of "intelligent" but common grid disturbances on an electrical power system, and
  8. Mitigate the possible negative impacts of grid disturbances on power systems through the use of controllers.
