Welcome to Smart Distribution Systems (2021)

Description: The Smart Grid concept involves integration of information and communication technology from the electricity generation to the consumption sectors. The bulk of the smart grid applications take place in the distribution grids (MV and LV) where significant amounts of renewable generation and flexible demand units are integrated, distribution controls are automated, assets are monitored and proactively managed and consumers are empowered for economic and efficient use of electricity. This course covers important applications and technologies of the smart distribution systems. The technical limitations and means of increasing the hosting capacity of distributed energy resources in intelligent grids are covered. In addition, the course also includes utility practices and guidelines, dynamics of electricity market, communication technologies and case studies relevant to future power distribution systems. 

It will be possible for external participants to participate online. But it requires a license for Power Factory.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
