Welcome to Renewable Energy based Integrated Energy Systems


Description: The course will provide training and education on the subject of renewable energy based integrated energy systems.

The Ph.D. course will include fundamental knowledge of energy sources, energy conversion systems, renewable energy integration, transmission, and distribution. Basic techniques of analysis, operation and control will be presented. The market issue will also be introduced. Some contents are based on up-to-date research results.

The main topics are as follows:

  • Overview of modern energy resources and systems
  • Basics of energy conversion systems
  • Advanced technologies and emerging facilities for energy system integration
  • Optimization techniques applied in integrated energy systems
  • Impact of renewable power integration and mitigation methods
  • Future energy market with significant renewable energy penetration
  • Renewable energy transmission: operation and control

Prerequisites: General knowledge in electrical AC circuits and electrical power engineering, preferably background at the graduate level in power systems. Exercises involve Matlab.

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 5,000 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 three 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.
