Introduction to Microgrids
With the increase of distributed generations, various types of microgrids such as buildings, homes, and campuses have been developed. Regarding to types, components, and topologies of microgirds, propoer control and operation methods have to be adopted in order to operate microgrid efficiently. In this course, microgrid’s characteristics, components, operation strategies, and control methods of distributed generations are introduced.
Heuristic Optimization Applications to Power Systems
Power systems are non-linear and very complex. To overcome these problems, heuristic optimization techniques such as particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, tabu search, and etc are introduced. Their applications to power system problems are studied and their pros and cons will also be discussed.
Power Systems Analysis
This course provides students with an introduction to the basic concepts of power systems. Basic features of electric power systems including phasors, complex power, and three-phase circuits are presented in the first place of the course. The fundamental economic operation of power systems is illustrated.
Energy and Future Society
As energy fusion era and new climate regime come, the importance of energy conversion/stroage/power converter and transmission/machine control which are core technologies of sustainable energy system, and furthermore their technological and policy issues will be introduced. As a result, it wlill also be discussed how these technologies change the energy mix in the industry, transportation, and residential environment during the coming period, and also change the future transportation system (Electrical Vehicle and Hydrogen Electrical Vehicle) and home appliances such as drones, robots, smart devices, internetd of things.
