Next Generation Power Systems

This course provides an overview of features of next generation power systems. This includes automated distribution networks, customer-owned power sources (solar panels, wind turbines and battery power), rapid voltage recovery and rapid synchronization of customer-owned power sources.

You compare historical practices to state-of-the-art customer expectations; compare power system operation with large, central generating sources to power system operation with small, customer-owned power sources; gain an understanding of the need for ride-through capability of customer-owned power sources; develop an understanding of the need to rapidly reconnect customer-owned power sources when faults are isolated, and discuss the advantages of converting substations to electric warehouses, transmission lines to power arteries, and distribution lines to power conduits.

You utilize risk consequence matrixes that compare concerns, such as too much generation, with solutions (for example, region-to-region load transfers). You also will review customer billing practices (dollars per KWH) to billing practices that enable recovery of utility expenditures after customers install their own power sources.

This course can be applied to the Electrical Engineering Certificate.
