Type: Electives
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Transmission and distribution of energy
The aim of this multidisciplinary course is to focus in the advanced operation of smart grids emphasizing the management of electricity networks through the application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT ) . To achieve this goal , students must acquire a body of knowledge , and capabilities. -knowledge about smart grids , its application and development in the electricity networks of the future. -knowledge about the mechanisms of energy storage management and integration of renewable energies. -knowledge about automation and measurement technologies used in Smart Grids. -knowledge about energy data management commonly used in smart grids. -knowledge about cybersecurity in smart grids.
Skills and learning outcomes
CB1. Students have demonstrated possession and understanding of knowledge in an area of study that builds on the foundation of general secondary education, and is usually at a level that, while relying on advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from the cutting edge of their field of study. CB2. Students are able to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional manner and possess the competences usually demonstrated through the development and defence of arguments and problem solving within their field of study. CB3. Students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their field of study) in order to make judgements which include reflection on relevant social, scientific or ethical issues. CB4. Students should be able to communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialist and non-specialist audiences. CB5. Students will have developed the learning skills necessary to undertake further study with a high degree of autonomy. CG4. Being able to do design, analysis, calculation, manufacture, test, verification, diagnosis and maintenance of energetic systems and devices. CG10. Being able to work in a multi-lingual and multidisciplinary environment CE7 Módulo TE. Ability for the calculus and design of electric power lines for energy transmission. CE8 Módulo TE. Applied knowledge on renewable energies. CT1. Ability to communicate knowledge orally as well as in writing to a specialized and non-specialized public. CT2. Ability to establish good interpersonal communication and to work in multidisciplinary and international teams. CT3. Ability to organize and plan work, making appropriate decisions based on available information, gathering and interpreting relevant data to make sound judgement within the study area. CT4. Motivation and ability to commit to lifelong autonomous learning to enable graduates to adapt to any new situation. By the end of this content area, students will be able to have: RA1.4 awareness of the wider multidisciplinary context of engineering.
