This intensive 12-Hour (2 day) course offers participants a deep dive into the transformation from traditional power structures to modern, smart grids that are rapidly incorporating renewable energy sources.
Day 1 starts with an exploration of how electric grids have evolved over the years, highlighting the mounting significance of renewables. It then transitions into a detailed analysis of intermittent renewable resources, such as solar and wind, discussing their variability and reliability. Participants will gain insight into the critical aspects of grid stability and reliability, emphasizing the necessity for frequency and voltage control, inertia, and ancillary services. The day wraps up by addressing the growing importance of grid storage solutions, from batteries to pumped hydro, and the emergence of demand response and distributed energy resources in grid stability.
On Day 2, the course pivots to the hardware and software technologies enabling smooth grid integration of renewables. Participants will familiarize themselves with advanced inverters, FACTS, PMUs, and the indispensable software technologies guiding grid management. A special segment is dedicated to microgrids, presenting their diverse use-cases and their potential in a renewables-heavy grid system. The day also delves into the crucial aspects of policy, regulations, and market mechanisms that shape renewable integration globally. Concluding the course, we cast our gaze forward, identifying future trends and research areas, from electric vehicle grid impacts to AI's role in grid management.
