Course overview

This online course introduces the learner to renewable energy generation technologies and sets them into the context of modern power systems with conventional generators. Modern power systems and the control and operation of synchronous generators are examined including the unconventional electrical generators and/or power electronics often employed by renewable energy technologies.

The course looks at the effects of introducing these types of generation on dynamic performance of power systems. The cost of energy of different technologies used at renewable energy sites and typical project costs are covered, including tax credits and feed-in tariffs. The course also examines different designs of the electrical systems in these plants and presents an overview of the relevant S&C products.

All prices shown are exclusive of VAT which will be added at checkout.
