Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the module Renewable Energy Technology in Electric Networks, participants will have comprehensive knowledge of relevant technologies and systems of renewable energy sources and storage. Students will get to know the modeling and control of renewable energy technology, which is of great importance for the understanding of grid integration.


The course "Renewable Energy Technology in Electric Networks" covers the topic of renewable resources, including wind, sun, tides and biomass as well as their significance for energy supply. The learning will be supported by a model-based approach. At the beginning, the focus lies on the control of a photovoltaic plant. The modeling comprises irradiation and maximum-power-point-tracking. Furthermore, the modeling of wind energy conversion systems is considered. Other topics include battery application, fuel cells, and tidal energy.
