Skills to be acquired in this module
By the end of this module, students should be able to program and protect smart grids.
Student will get a suitable knowledge on:
- smart grid concept and development
- protection system in electrical power systems
- telecommunication infrastructure in smart grids
Engineering design:
Graduates will be able to design engineering solutions to the challenge of programming smart-grids. They will be able to do the complex task of coordinating protective devices for RE, integrate mini and micro generation in distribution grids or plan and optimise primary-secondary distribution systems.
Transferable skills:
Graduates will be able to work effectively as a professional and as team member in the resolution of technical problems related to integration of RE in electric grids. Also, graduates will demonstrate their abilities to communicate effectively in multinational groups.
