After this course, the student will be familiar with the main distributed generation technologies and the main implications, both technical and economic of its integration in an existing grid.
The student should therefore be able to describe the behaviour, analyze, size and design distributed generation systems, either isolated or connected to another grid.
He should be able to choose the most appropriate technology, given a certain objective, taking into account the modifications needed by the existing grid protections, understanding the impact in power quality (reliability, system voltages, etc.) and assessing the corresponding costs.
The student should be able to simulate and design a small sistem of medium complexity that includes all the previous aspects.
