This course studies the challenges and solutions of integration of Electrical Energy generated from non-conventional Renewable Energy sources to the grid.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
|Campus||Old Aberdeen||Sustained Study||No|
The challenges of connecting renewable energy to the grid and the existing solutions are discussed first in this course. A review of the Renewable Energy integration requirements proposed in the grid codes (Scottish and National grid codes) is also presented.
The converters (current source and voltage source) as the main components to integrate the Renewable Energy sources to grids are then studied. High voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission as a new technology for transmission of bulk energy over long distance is also studied. Case studies are used to enhance student knowledge and understanding.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
Three hour written examination (70%); plus continuous assessment (30%).
The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded
There are no assessments for this course.
