OVERVIEW

This course is relevant to Power Systems engineering, in light of the industrial revolution towards a low fossil fuel society.

The technical & economic management of new power systems relying on renewables, storage units and low emissions fossil fuel trigeneration sources is a fundamental skill of an Energy Engineer interested to devolp her/his future career in the industrial or institutional sectors or as a freelance working on Sustainable Energy issues.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is designed to provide theoretical and methodological skills for the economic analyses related to the development of projects in the sustainable energy sector. In this context, it encompasses the fundamentals of energy markets, the procedures to calculate high efficiency cogeneration and the levelized cost of electricity. A special focus is devoted to new power production and distribution infrastructures such as smart grids and smart microgrids, with specific insight concerning with energy management platforms.

TEACHING METHODS

Theoretical lectures with specific case studies to be solved in order to fix all the concepts.
