Electrical energy stands out in importance due to the many applications that it has and the many more that are currently being developed for it. This growing demand means that larger quantities of electrical power must be produced, and this must be done in a sustainable and low carbon-intensity manner. As such, renewable sources of electrical energy, harnessing resources such as solar energy or the wind, are gaining in importance within the electrical energy mix. Given how these are produced, an important part of these are known as variable renewable energy (VRE).

Power generation based on VRE poses new challenges to power grids. Some of these challenges can be addressed by adapting power systems' flexibility to the increasingly variable power generation output from VRE sources.

This course focuses on:

  • Boundary conditions and procedures for grid operation
  • Infrastructure improvements for VRE integration
  • Congestion management considering low carbon emissions

Receive a reminder one week before the registration deadline.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • identify the technical limits of electrical grids;
  • describe the most important boundary conditions and procedures for grid operation;
  • explain which grid infrastructure components allow the transmission and distribution of high shares of VRE generation across the power system; and
  • analyse congestion management procedures considering low carbon emissions.

This course is suitable for those whom:

  • are involved in grid operation, transmission and distribution with high shares of variable renewable energy (VRE);
  • want to understand the available options to manage grid infrastructure with a high amount of VRE; or
  • need to develop strategies to integrate VRE into grid operation.
