Photovoltaics and Renewable Energy Grid CAS

Photovoltaic Systems comprise a decentralized electricity generation and fluctuating availability, which pose a challenge on grid stability.

Participants will be able to design and optimize energy management systems for optimized energy production and storage as well as grid connected energy systems.

Learning goals:

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the complex interactions between photovoltaic systems and the power grid
  • Learn about the control aspects of photovoltaic systems and the integration of a huge amount of photovoltaic energy in the electricity grid
  • Get an understanding of smart grids and energy autonomous communities
