Renewable energy is and will continue to be the key solution to a sustainable future in tackling environmental crisis such as climate change. This course covers various renewable energy systems that are popular in industry and explores the operation and control of renewable integration. It is designed for engineers who work with electrical systems involving the utilization of renewable energy.
The objective of this course is to impart detailed knowledge of the design and planning of power generation using renewable sources, along with the role of power electronics as part of renewable energy systems.
Sustainable energy is a concept which needs to be reinforced in the interest of preserving the environment and is going to continue being a significant focus area for future decades. A thorough knowledge of the technologies utilising renewable sources, their economical implication, and their pros and cons, is essential for all engineers.
This course aims to provide detailed knowledge and appreciation of renewable technologies. Students will not only gain in-depth understanding of renewable power fundamentals, but will also be introduced with advanced associated technologies such as energy storage, distributed generation, microgrid and the use of artificial intelligence in renewable systems. Further, student will gain practical skills on the modelling and simulation of popular renewable systems such as wind and solar power systems.
One topic is delivered per contact week.
