KurzbeschreibungThis module provides an overview over the technical operation and management of power grid systems.
LernzielParticipants will gain an understanding of the operation and management of power grid systems, including challenges and opportunities for future developments.
InhaltFor decades, electric power grid systems remained essentially unchanged. Now, they are undergoing significant changes driven by technology. Despite or maybe even because of these changes it is important to understand the fundamental setup and workings of the electric power grid.

Participants will learn about the technical operation and management of traditional power grid systems. The fundamental equipment and mechanisms responsible for transforming and transporting electricity to end users and the concept of AC power will be explained. Typical grid connections and management and the underlying physical principles will be discussed. The opportunities for and barriers to future grid technology and systems from both an operator’s and end user’s perspective will be explored, potentially including distributed generation, microgrids/islanding, demand response, virtual power plants, etc.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesMAS AT participants must have successfully completed CAS 1 and 2 in order to enrol.

Non-MAS applicants must satisfy the following requirements:
- Demonstrated managerial experience working with technology companies or industries
- Good knowledge of English
- ETH recognized Master’s degree*

CAS ATE applications will be reviewed by the Admission Committee of the Certificate Programme. The final decision is communicated in writing.

* For non-MAS applicants, preference may be given to applicants with technical degrees or demonstrated practical knowledge in a relevant field for the purpose of maintaining a higher level of technical discussion.
