Course main content

The course is concerned with the application of advanced technologies, analysis methods, and tools with the objective of efficient system operation, control and protection of electric power systems.

The course is oriented towards smart grid concepts such as the application of modern telecommunication systems, synchrophasor technology, and other technologies for smart operation, smart control and smart protection in the presence of renewable energy sources.

In particular, practical implementations in the laboratory are analyzed and compared to the theoretical background. The course makes use of real-time and real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation for testing and validation of the implementation of new analysis methods, hardware and software prototypes developed during the course.
