Intelligent networks
Master in Renewable Energy in Power Systems (Plan: 276 - Estudio: 266)

Coordinating teacher: ALONSO MARTINEZ, MONICA

Department assigned to the subject: Electrical Engineering Department

Type: Compulsory
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
-Electrical Equipment and Systems
The objectives of the course are: -Know the principles of active intelligent networks (smart grids) and the integration of renewable energy sources in active distribution networks. -Knowledge of active network operation and control techniques: Stability, frequency-power control, voltage control, state estimation. -Knowledge of automation and AMR measurement systems in smart grids. -Know the demand management measures and management of active distribution networks. -Know the impact of digitization on smart grids before events. Based on these objectives, at the end of the course the student will be able to: -design voltage control systems in smart grids with the presence of distributed generation and electric vehicles, -develop tools that improve the generation-demand balance through the active participation of demand, -model smart electrical networks for the analysis of vulnerabilities, impact and their mitigation before events.
