The transition from traditional power generation to renewable energy sources requires an increase in the operational flexibility of the network. Renewable energy sources, such as wind or photovoltaic are either cyclical, or they have a fluctuating power level. In order to guarantee a sufficient and reliable electricity supply, this supply needs to be matched to the demand at all time. Energy sources are changing from large centralized sources to local integrated sources with, or without, storage facilities. As a result, the requirements with respect to the operational flexibility of all components in the grid become more demanding. Therefore, new energy network concepts with respect to transmission (AC or DC), conversion and storage need to be further developed.

The minor focusses on generation, transport, distribution and the control of electrical networks for modern grids. Both low voltage and high voltage grids are studied. Everything is approached from the perspective of an electrical engineer.

Only students with an electrical engineering background can apply.
