Description: The markets for grid-connected variable renewable energies (wind power and photovoltaics) are growing and the share of electricity generation from wind and PV is steadily increasing worldwide. System integration of variable renewable energies is becoming increasingly important. Today, tools and methods are available to enable secure and reliable operation of an energy supply system and its sustainable planning. Today e.g. wind and PV feed in can be forecasted with a high accuracy, dimensioning of balancing power can take weather dependency of wind and PV
into account and the amount of firm wind and PV capacity during times of peak load can be calculated precisely.

This course looks at some of these tools and methods with focus on PV and wind. It is therefore a must for all those who want to prepare for current and future tasks and for those who want to become or remain leading experts in the energy sector.

This training suits those who:
 Are responsible for power system planning and strategy development such as regulators, energy service companies, energy ministries, advisors and consultants
 Plan and operate transmission and distribution electricity grids
 Like to learn about grid integration strategies

After the seminar, you will be able to:
 Apply short-term wind and PV forecasts for grid operation and energy market transactions
 Calculate the reliable variable renewable energy power contribution
 Dimension balancing power needs for system planning
 Explain frequency and voltage control with PV inverters and wind turbines
 Set-up a grid and/or system integration study for variable renewable energy
