Development of future smart power systems requires careful analysis design of interoperable, secure, robust and high-performing ICT systems that implement the advanced power system control applications needed.
The course consists of a large project assignment in which the course participants are required to implement a specific ”Smart” power system function. The project involves analyzing requirements, designing a solution and finally implementing the solution. The implementation is based on the components available in the course lab. The course also consists of a series of seminars in which present and future challenges in development of ICT based systems for power system control and automation are discussed.
The project is conducted in a group of students assisted by a project coach at the department. The project is started with a requirements analysis stage studying Smart Grid Use Cases, as the course progresses advanced control conecpts are introduced enabling the students to design a Smartgrid function and finally implement the control function in the department lab. The course therefore requires not only power system understanding but also communication system and programming language knowledge.
