OVERVIEW

94669 – CRITICAL ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURES MODELLING AND SIMULATION

Scientific domain: ING-IND/33 Electric Power Systems

European Credit Transfer System Credits (ECTS): 5

Year: Second year of the M.Sc. in Engineering for Natural Risk Management

Lessons schedule: according to Polytechnic School timetable

Lecturer: STEFANO BRACCO

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is focused on the modelling and simulation of critical energy infrastructures, such as smart grids, electricity production plants, electrical storage systems and transmission lines, considering also electrical system faults; the planning and the operation of the aforementioned energy infrastructures composed of different interconnected systems will be analyzed and the main characteristics of the electric system will be discussed.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main purpose of the course is to provide students competences in the field of power systems engineering in order to plan and manage critical energy infrastructures. Students will acquire skills to develop technical and economic analyses, and simulation/optimization models of complex energy infrastructures. Competences on energy markets, electric storage systems and electric mobility will be also acquired.

PREREQUISITES

Knowledge of power plants.

Knowledge of power systems and electrical engineering.

Knowledge of mathematical analysis and systems theory.

Teaching methods

The course is based on theoretical lectures, solution of case problems and computer aided exercises (using Matlab, Simulink, Yalmip).

Exercises will be also done in the laboratory of the Smart Polygeneration Microgrid of the Savona Campus.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT
