The objectives of this course are to learn about the key technologies for different renewable generations, smart grids and microgrid operations. This course covers the understanding and design of distributed generation systems based on solar photovoltaics and fuel cells. These systems can be connected to the utility grid or to a microgrid.
- Graduate Certificate in Power Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Power Engineering
At the end of the course, learners are able to:
1. obtain the in-depth knowledge of distributed generation technologies;
2. obtain the in-depth knowledge of microgrid energy management and voltage regulation;
3. comprehend that distributed generation systems in microgrids can offer increased reliability and reduced network losses and;
4. understand that renewable energy systems based on energy sources such as solar and wind do not diminish over time and are independent of fluctuations in fuel price.
This course will introduce the major distributed generation technologies and their applications in smart grids. Besides, the preliminaries of electricity market will also be introduced.
This course will firstly introduce the concepts and architecture of the microgrids. Then, the energy management and the voltage regulation of the microgrids with renewable energy resources will be introduced, respectively.
This course focuses on the fundamental of wind energy. In particular, this course discusses what makes wind, how turbines work, wind power and coefficient calculation, negative impacts, and design problem.
This course first explains why we need solar energy. Two main types of solar energy are introduced including solar thermal and photovoltaic (PV) power. Photovoltaic effects, solar PV I-V curves, and operation modes will be elaborated.
This course introduces the fundamental of fuel cells. A brief introduction to hydrogen will be given. Fuel cells will be discussed in detail such as the history, how they work, categories, efficiency, and applications.
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.
