Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to calculate the operating parameters of overhead lines and asymmetrical operating states in electrical networks. They can also carry out calculations for photovoltaic systems, wind turbines and virtual power plants, as well as the grid control.

After successfully completing the course, students are also able to understand the concept of energy services and electricity markets and to carry out statistical analyzes of electricity prices and generation data from generation units. They can perform profitability and investment calculations as well as calculations of the market value of photovoltaic systems and wind turbines.
