Learning outcomes Accordingly to the general objectives of the third cycle of studies of the superior educational system, this curricular unit is mainly directed to the research education, with the objective of providing to the students the capacity for promoting the technological, social and cultural progress. -Become familiar with different energy conversion systems that exploit renewable energy sources. -Become familiar with the control techniques used mainly in wind and PV systems. -Become familiar with different forecasting techniques and on the application specificity of forecasting renewable energy production. -Become capable of identifying the main problems for operation and planning resulting from large-scale grid integration of renewable energy sources. -Become familiar with different micro-generation technologies and their dynamic models, as well as microgrid optimal management.
Syllabus -Detailed modeling of different types of renewable energy conversion systems. -Impacts of renewable energy conversion systems on power quality. -Control solutions to improve system behavior in scenarios with large-scale grid integration of renewable energy sources. -Forecasting models of renewable generation based on temporal series and neural networks. -Grid code requirements and new management and control structures. -Economic issues: remuneration of renewable energy systems and participation in electricity markets. -Reserves and system flexibility for handling variability/uncertainty of renewable generation. -Combined operation of wind generation and hydro pumping systems. -Microgeneration, distributed generation and microgrids. -Smart grids, electric vehicles and demand response: from concepts to real applications incorporating renewable energies.
