  • Course details

The six-months online training “Certified Flexible Power System Specialist” has been developed in response to the increasing need to understand the operation of power systems with high shares of variable renewable energy as wind and solar-PV (VRE). It aims to explain the effects of Variable Renewable Energies on power system operations and generation capacity expansion planning. The training shall equip participants with knowledge on flexibility options in power systems that that allow high shares of Variable Renewwable Energy.

Introductory courses

Each participant will have access to short introductory courses on energy and electricity topics to learn or revise the basics. These courses are not mandatory, and will not be covered in the exam.

CFPSS courses

  • PV application
  • PV-diesel hybrid systems
  • Wind power
  • Wind and PV grid integration
  • Flexibility options for power systems
  • Flexibility thermal power plants

After the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Consult energy ministries or working groups that draft energy strategies and propose measures to increase the power system flexibility
  • Provide advice to private and public institutions on tender documents for flexible thermal generation capacity

This training suits those who:

  • Build medium- and long-term strategies for intercon- nected power supply systems with thermal power plants and high shares of wind power and photovoltaic power stations
  • Prepare decisions to invest in new or to retrofit existing thermal power generation capacity
  • Analyse the development of market shares of thermal power generation capacity
  • Avoid stranded investments in thermal power stations

Duration: 6 months
