ECE-UY 3143 Introduction to Smart Grids

3 Credits
Emerging technologies such as enhanced communication and information systems, controllable electrical loads, energy storage, and renewable generation resources will constitute the backbone of future smart grids. Compared to traditional power grids, it is anticipated that smart grids will increase the overall energy efficiency, reliability and quality of energy delivery. This multi-disciplinary class is aimed at a broad audience of students and will teach basic concepts of traditional power system analysis placed in the context of emerging smart grid technologies and operating concepts (e.g., enhanced controllability and observability, demand-side participation, physical and cyber security, uncertainty-aware decision making). These aspects will be discussed with respect to deregulation, modernization, operation and expansion, and policy of the power sector. Students will gain basic theoretical and practical knowledge underlying smart grids and hands-on experience with modeling and CAD tools.

Prerequisite(s): (MA-UY 1124  or an approved equivalent) and (MA-UY 2034  or an approved equivalent) or instructor’s permission.
Weekly Lecture Hours: 3
