Aim of course

The lecture smart grids is aimed at electrical engineers in the branch of study computer and energy technic. Target will be the conveying of interdisciplinary methodological knowledge around the cross section between energy and information technology. Issues arising from the energy transition and resulting technical challenges for the power grid are challenges of great social relevance for upcoming future smart grids. The current rapid technological developments in this area already showed a great demand of professionals in the economy as well as in research.

For students with branch of study computer engineering:
These lecture can be combined with the lecture "384.999 Next Generation Air Traffic Management Systems" as alternative to the course "Web-Engineering (184.229)".

Subject of course

  • Smart Grids Overview
  • System operation and management of future electricity networks
  • Connection of electric vehicles to smart grids
  • Virtual power plants for economic and technical network optimization
  • Communications infrastructure for smart grids


Additional information

The lecture slides will be uploaded after each lecture. They only will become visible, after you registered for an exam date.
