Renewable Energy Integration Systems


The course introduces students to the effects of integrating renewable energy to the transmission and distribution systems. Students will learn the benefits and drawbacks of this integration. At the completion of this topic the students should know AC/DC drives control, predictive direct power control of systems connected into the grid, technological aspects of power electronic systems connection to the grid, active network devices, control and FACTS technology, and micro-grids.
