Overview

Please note, This instructor-led course has specific dates and times:
This course is scheduled for 1 day (3 Hours).
11am-2pm Eastern

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Interact more effectively with other work groups involved in the smart grid design and operations
  • Apply knowledge of wind, solar and other unconventional generation in regulatory work
  • Understand the reliability issues in a smart grid and their mitigations
  • Review reliability standards and their use in specific applications
  • Participate in discussions regarding the latest trends and developments in electric power system

Description:
Use of renewable for power generation and its integration with the smart grid technology is the modern trend in power system design. The course describes the latest trends in the design of an intelligent power system which is also known as smart grid. It describes step by step the use of wind, solar and other renewables in power generation, their strengths and weaknesses and their integration with the existing transmission and distribution systems. The course discusses the application of modern technologies used in a smarter power system, their functionalities, and new developments, lessons learned from the initial setbacks, the electric vehicles and their impact on power system.

The course is intended to provide a clear understanding of smart grid basics to a wide range of professionals who, although qualified in their own disciplines, may not have received specific training on smart grid technologies. The course is also designed to benefit engineers who are seeking to advance their understanding of the smart grid and its integration in a conventional power system.

Course Outline:

  • What is distributed generation (DG)
  • Advantages and disadvantages of DG
  • Types of DG: Wind, Solar, Natural gas, Others
  • What is a smart grid?
  • Why smart grid?
  • Smart grid in distribution
  • Smart grid in Transmission
  • Electric vehicles
  • Smart grid initiatives: North America, Europe, Asia
  • Smart grid technical issues: Codes and standards, Reliability, Cyber security and privacy

Who Should Attend
The course is designed for individuals who are associated with power system related work but do not have direct power system background. For example, regulators, legal services, engineers from disciplines other than electrical engineering, technicians involved in power system related work, oil and gas industries professionals as well as electricity export/import market specialists will find this course to be useful.
