Sustainable mobility and energy efficiency
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: Electives
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
The students should have previous knowledge of power systems engineering: circuit theory, electrical machines, load flow, short circuits and power system stability to follow this subjects. Otherwise, they should course Electrical systems and equipment.
The general objective of the course is to provide students with the basic knowledge of energy efficiency and new forms of sustainable mobility. The specific objectives are: - That students acquire knowledge of energy efficiency in the electricity generation sector, - That students learn the different technologies used to improve energy efficiency in the residential sector: generation technologies, lighting efficiency, air conditioning, etc., - Know the existing technologies on the market in terms of sustainable mobility as well as the planned development: electric, hybrid, hydrogen, etc. - Determine the requirements of the distribution networks for the integration of electric vehicles and the operation of the networks, taking into account the interaction of these devices with the generation-demand balance.
