OVERVIEW

94669 – CRITICAL ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURES MODELLING AND SIMULATION

Scientific domain: ING-IND/33 Electrical 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 contents in the field of power systems engineering and, in particular, in the sector of critical energy infrastructures. Students will acquire skills to develop technical and economic analyses, and simulation/optimization models of complex energy infrastructures. Competences on smart grids/microgrids/nanogrids, electrical storage systems and electric mobility will be also acquired.

PREREQUISITES

Knowledge of power systems and energy systems.

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, Homer).

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

- The Italian and European electric system (production, transmission, distribution): technical and legislative aspects ("Clean Energy for all Europeans” package of the European Commission)

- Local Energy Communities (Renewable Energy Directive (REDII) 2018/2001/EU, Electricity Market Directive (EMD II) 20019/944/EU, etc.)

- Elements of energy markets

- Reliability and vulnerability of electrical networks, elements of electrical safety

- Smart grids/microgrids/nanogrids: technical, economic and environmental aspects, the Smart Polygeneration Microgrid of the Savona Campus

- Electrical storage systems

- Electric mobility systems (electric vehicles and charging infrastructures, V2X technologies)

- Simulation models of power plants and storage systems

- Optimization models for planning and management of distributed generation systems and smart grids/microgrids/nanogrids
