At the end of the course, learners  are able to:

1. obtain an in-depth understanding of the elements of microgrids.

2. obtain an in-depth knowledge of micro hydro and marine energy.

3. obtain the in-depth knowledge and understanding of demand side management with the two main programs.

4. obtain an in-depth knowledge of electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid as well as the corresponding design and operation.

Fundamentals of Microgrids

This course first recalls the elements of power systems and smart grids. The definition, components, controls and optimization of microgrids will be presented subsequently.

Micro Hydroand Marine Energy

This course presents the fundamental of hydro and marine energy. For hydro, the course will provide an overview and discuss micro hydro, energy calculation and optimum flow rate, and types of turbines. For marine, an overview and available technologies will be included.

Demand Side Management

This course focuses on demand side management. Two programs will be introduced including energy efficiency and demand response. For demand response, the following topics will be discussed: Overview, Classification, Evaluation, Ancillary service and OPF formulation.

Vehicle to Grid

This course presents the fundamental of vehicle-to-grid. Electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid will be introduced. For electric vehicles, some topics such as history, classification, efficiency, and challenges will be discussed. The definition and operation of vehicle-to-grid will be also introduced.

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.
