The general trend in modern power systems is to increase competition in order to achieve better performance and efficiency in the electricity production, transmission and distribution. In the modern electric energy market, the role of power systems becomes more important due to the existing competition issues. The reliability performance of power systems together with the reliability indices of service supplied to system customers constitute major aspects that are taken into account in the system planning and operating phases. Therefore, there is a need for planning and operating considerations that must be followed by the power system operators, energy suppliers and customers in order to assure that they will be able to operate reliably and safely together. All the above aspects need a probabilistic modelling and evaluation assessment since the existing deterministic criteria and standards cannot simulate realistically all the existing features of power systems and their customers. The objective of the Reliability & Operational Performance of Electric Power Systems training course is to describe the most important areas that need probabilistic modelling and evaluation assessment.
This Coventry Academy training course will feature:
By the end of this Coventry Academy training course, participants will be able to:
This Coventry Academy training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals that need to have an intermediate level of knowledge for power system analysis and probabilistic theory. These include:
This Coventry Academy training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. These mainly include appropriate Power Point slides that have efficiently been developed in order to contain all the necessary information being required for the complete knowledge of the respective theoretical and practical subjects. Appropriate examples are also given so that the main points of each topic are better understood. A set of notes containing all the slides of the presentations will be available together with an extended list of references (books, papers, technical reports, etc.).
