Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the module Renewable Energy Integration in Electric Networks, participants will have important engineering competence on grid integration of renewable energy. The focus is on dynamic behavior of renewable energy sources in the grid during normal operation and in case of a fault. This will help students to design efficient and grid-compatible solutions for the integration of renewable energy.


The content is developed through a model-based approach. Models for renewable energy systems in the grid will be developed step by step. This includes the conversion stages from the source to the grid. Different types of system dynamics are considered. Control systems are designed. Smart grid topics such as virtual power plants and microgrids are discussed.
