The system automation is increasingly sophisticated with advanced information technology and digital controls leading to a network that not only benefits from with self-healing elements but then again it facilitate new business models for all classes of customers.
The salient attribute of the Smart City resides in its ability to gradually integrate information system services of each vertical ranging from key services such as health, education, transportation, power grid etc., of the city necessary to provide public services to citizens efficiently. The Smart City extends further, into new ways to consume and access entertainment. These changing behaviours of consumers with increased expectations induce massive challenges and requirements.
This extends the customers engagement with utilities or power providers to new type of contractual arrangements and innovative access to information. Electricity customers emulate the enterprise as they represent the new platform of big data, smart energy appliances or programs and online mobile applications.
The course examines the platform of the smart grid, its multiple layers and the multiple controls over the grid and its relationship to customers and provides examples on how it expends on the smart city. At grid level, the course looks further into power electronic technologies as a more effective and economical operation of the grid.
The important aspect of Privacy and Cyber Security is addressed, introducing the Blockchain as a new line of defense against cyber threats.
