Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, students will have • the ability to solve real-world problems with an analytical approach • a deeper understanding of the technical, regulatory, economic, and environmental aspects of electricity • keen insights into the challenges associated with the integration of renewable energy resources to grid • sufficient skills to optimize the operation of energy resources, loads, and energy storage resources based on user-defined objectives and constraints • the capability to apply machine learning algorithms to forecast load and renewable electricity generation


The course explores the technical, economic, environmental and policy aspects of microgrids with renewable energy resources (RERs), energy storage resources (ESRs), and electric vehicles (EVs). The upsurge in renewable generation, EV sales, and ESR integration, the restructuring of the electricity industry, the aging transmission system, and the increasing interest in environmental protection are presenting unparalleled challenges to the electric power industry. Microgrids permit the reliable integration of RERs, EVs, and ESRs to the electricity grid, and enable the local consumption and generation of electricity, thereby alleviating congestion in the transmission system. A key challenge in microgrids is the optimization of the controllable physical assets in the microgrid based on user-defined goals and constraints, all the while ensuring a reliable operation of the microgrid. In this course, students will form groups to undertake projects on the energy management of a house, a vessel, and an electric vehicle, that are modeled as microgrids. Lectures on the basics of power systems, power flow equations, optimization techniques, and renewable and load forecasting techniques will be conducted. In addition, the economic and regulatory policy aspects of electricity are treated.
