Instructor: Ian Hiskens
Modern society is highly dependent upon reliable, economic electricity supply. This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills required to analyze and design power system (aka “smart grid”). It will develop models and tools for investigating system behavior, and provide opportunities for using those tools in design processes. Optimal generation dispatch will be developed, and electricity market implementation issues addressed. The impact of renewable generation on power system operation will be considered.
