Electrical Energy Systems program
Microgrids are small-scale electrical energy grids that can operate either autonomously or interconnected with other grids. This subject aims to provide students with a knowledge and understanding of the design principles and control strategies for sustainable microgrids. Efficient, reliable and sustainable energy is a key feature of global change and energy protection systems such as microgrids play a major role. Students learn about basic microgrid background and structure; distributed generation; energy storage (capacitors, batteries, fuel cells, etc.); converter types and functions; power dispatch and energy management; hierarchical control structures; microgrid modelling; microgrid stability; microgrid protection; storage technology; and battery characteristics. Case studies are used to illustrate the concepts discussed.
