This course will only be offered from 2022
This course will introduce the opportunities for, and the challenges of, integrating different forms of renewable energy generation, distributed energy resources and energy storage into the electricity system. In this context, this course will provide a broad understanding of the structure and operation of modern electricity systems and electricity markets. This course will introduce a variety of tools , techniques, and software to investigate these topics. The course will also provide opportunities to undertake laboratory sessions, providing significant hands on opportunities for exploring these crucial aspects of modern power system design and operation.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Professionally apply advanced knowledge, engineering methods, tools and software systems to problems related to the integration and operation of renewable energy generation and distributed energy resources in electricity systems, electricity markets, microgrids, embedded networks, and remote area power systems.
- Analyse and assess the impacts of renewable energy generation and distributed energy resources on electricity system design, operation and performance, and power system stability.
- Identify, describe and analyse current developments and emerging trends related to the integration and operation of renewable energy generation and distributed energy resources as they relate to electricity generation, transmission, distribution, and electricity retail, and energy markets in Australia, and elsewhere.
- Communicate clearly and effectively using a variety of communication tools and mediums.
- Undertake independent research into, and complex design of, critical aspects of the integration and operation of renewable energy generation and distributed energy resources to address issues related to energy reliability, and energy and system security.
- Work collaboratively and effectively in teams to address complex, interdisciplinary problems related to the integration and operation of renewable energy generation and distributed energy resources in the electricity system and electricity markets.
