Measurement Techniques and Distributed Intelligence for Power Systems
The course presents the role of measurements and monitoring in power systems, and it introduces the new measurement requirements and technologies of modern power systems.
The fundamentals of measurements are briefly recalled, with particular attention to measurement uncertainty. Sensors and instruments are reviewed, with emphasis on phasor measurement units as key component in synchronised measurements. The state estimation is introduced as a most significant example of monitoring function. Notes on the digitalisation of the measurement and monitoring processes are presented.
Electrical Grids Today and Tomorrow
The module gives an overview of what is changing in power systems and how renewables are changing some of the key concepts that have been applied for many years. It outlines perspectives about the system of the future.
Real Time Simulation and Power System Dynamics
This module will be conducted as laboratory exercise about real time simulation and power system dynamics. Students will learn how to use a modern research tool: real time simulation. By using this tool, they will directly experience some key concepts of power system dynamics in a computer simulation.
The module introduces the topic of microgrids, including the definition, structure and implementation of a microgrid. It also deals with the role of microgrids in future energy systems.
Real-Time Simulation and Key Challenges of Future Power Systems
This module will be conducted as laboratory exercise in which students will have the chance to use real time simulation again to understand some of the key challenges of future power systems.
