The use of communications and information technologies is likely to cause major shifts in the way energy gets delivered. The smart grid will use these technologies to deliver electricity reliably and efficiently, and it has the potential to radically change the electricity sector in the same way that new technologies changed the telecommunications sector. This course will examine not just the smart grid technologies, but the transformational impacts of the smart grid on the industry. Students in this course will learn the fundamentals of the smart grid: its purpose and objectives, its technologies, its architectures, and its management. Students will also learn many of the challenges facing the smart grid as part of its evolution

1. Demonstrate a high level of qualitative and quantitative understanding of how modern power systems operate from a physical and economic perspective.
2. Describe in detail how ICT is impacting patterns and methods of electric energy generation
3. Describe in detail how ICT is impacting patterns and methods of electric energy transmission
4. Describe in detail how ICT is impacting patterns and methods of electric energy distribution
5. Describe in detail how ICT is impacting patterns an
d methods of electric energy consumption

  1. Power systems history and basic physics
  2. Smart Grid & power supply ( Power System economics Renewable, intermittent power sources , Storage , The need for demand response — the emissions and economics costs of peak power , Microgrids )
  3. Elements of the power grid and measurement technologies : generation, transmission, distribution, and end – user ; Wide area monitoring system (WAMS), advanced meter ing infrastructure (AMI), and phasor measurement units (PMU)
  4. Elements of communication and networking: architectures, sta ndards and adaptation of power line communication (PLC), GSM, and more; machine ­ ­ ‐ to ­ ­ ‐ mac hine communication models for the s mart grid;
