OVERVIEW

86667 – POWER SYSTEMS SIMULATION AND OPTIMIZATION

Scientific domain: ING-IND/33 Electrical Power Systems

European Credit Transfer System Credits (ECTS): 6

Year: Second year of the M.Sc. in Energy Engineering

Lessons schedule: according to Polytechnic School timetable

Lecturer: STEFANO BRACCO

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is designed to provide the students the theoretical and methodological skills necessary for the development of power system simulation and optimization models. The goals of this course are to provide the students the capabilities related to modelling different power system technologies in off-design and transient operating conditions, through the use of dedicated software, and to developing optimization mathematical models to design and manage distributed generation plants, smart grids and microgrids, and electric mobility systems.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main purpose of the course is to provide students competences on the development of power system optmization and simulation tools, with a particular focus on distributed generation, smart grids/microgrids/nanogrids and smart electric mobility systems. Students will acquire skills to develop mathematical models for the simulation of the behaviour of power plants in off-design and transient conditions. Moreover, students will be able to develop optimization models to design and daily operate smart grids and smart microgrids/nanogrids (Energy Management Systems). Competences on electric storage systems and electric mobility (vehicle-to-grid V2G and vehicle-to-building V2B technologies, Smart Charging of electric vehicles) will be also acquired.

 

PREREQUISITES

Knowledge of power plants.

Knowledge of power and energy systems.

Knowledge of mathematical analysis and systems theory.

Teaching methods

The course is organized in interactive lectures on theoretical topics, solution of case studies and computer aided exercises (using Matlab, Simulink, Simscape, Yalmip, Homer).
