Introduction of “Smart Grid” and “Energy Internet”

This course will introduce the evolutionary history of the power systems, and the basic concepts and technical features of the smart grid and energy internet.

Advanced Metering in Smart Grids

This course will introduce the architecture and key technologies for advance metering in smart grids. Two main techniques are covered: advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and phasor measurement unit (PMU).

Energy Storage Technologies

This course will introduce the five major energy storage technologies including their working principles, advantages and disadvantages. Besides, the health modeling and monitoring of Li-ion batteries will also be introduced.

Energy Storage Applications In Smart Grids

This course will introduce seven typical applications of energy storage systems in smart grids, which are

1) Load leveling
2) Electric vehicle (EV)
3) Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
4) Thermal energy storage
5) Frequency control
6) Microgrid operation
7) Demand response

For engineers who wish to upgrade their technical knowledge and skills in the area of power and energy engineering, which can be applied in the power supply industry.
