The course will provide students with a working knowledge of fundamentals, design, analysis, and development of Smart Grid. The course offers an introduction to the basic concepts of power systems along with the inherent elements of computational intelligence, communication technology and decision support system. The automation and computational techniques needed to ensure that the Smart Grid guarantees adaptability and capability of handling new systems and components are discussed. The interoperability of different renewable energy sources are included to ensure that there will be minimum changes in the existing legacy system. Standards and requirements needed for designing new devices, systems and products for the Smart Grid are discussed. Power flow analysis and optimization schemes needed for the generation, transmission, distribution, demand response, and reconfiguration is explained in detail and simulation tools such as Matlab, OpenModelica and Power World are used.
Electric Machines and Power Converters. Electronic Measurements. The modules "Power Plants" and "Electric Energy Systems" is also recommended.
