Machine Learning for Power Engineers

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will have an understanding of:

  • The basics of machine learning algorithms.
  • The overall implementation of machine learning from collecting the data to the classification process.
  • Sources of machine learning errors.
  • New trends in machine learning.
  • The use of available machine learning software.
  • Application of machine learning to different power engineering problems.

Application of machine learning in the power system is an integral part of the smart grid. This course introduces the basic knowledge of machine learning for power engineers with emphasis on applications related to the power industry. Types of machine learning algorithms like supervised, unsupervised and deep learning will be discussed. Also, the practical problems that diminish the efficiency of machine learning like over fitting and imbalance of data will be highlighted.

The main focus of the course is on the practical application of machine learning to the power grid without going deep into the math or the statistics behind the different algorithms. Hands-on tutorials using a free software will be utilized to demonstrate the application of machine learning to the power industry.
