Why Choose this Training Course?

The increased penetration of renewable energy sources constitutes one of the most important aspects of power generation systems due to the respective economic benefits that may occur and the appropriate environmental constraints. This fact results to a continuously increased rate of investments concerning appropriate generation facilities in many power generation facilities worldwide. An increased penetration level of renewable energy sources is expected to be achieved. However, it may affect the secure operation of the entire power system and the reliable supply of electric energy to the customers due to the uncertainty of weather conditions that constitute the main operational features of the respective generating plants.

The objective of the training course in Dubai is to describe the concepts and features of computational methodologies that can be used for assessing the reliability and operational performance of power generation systems with an increased penetration level of renewable energy installations.

This AZTech training course will feature:

  • State of the art knowledge of the available computational methods
  • Efficient computational methods that can be applied for the analysis of the respective reliability problems
  • Description of the appropriate sets of reliability and operational indices that need to be calculated
  • Presentation of application examples by using practical power systems and case studies
  • Important conclusions concerning the necessary procedures and practices for the planning and operation of power generation systems with an increased penetration level of renewable energy installations.

 

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech training course, participants will be able to:

  • Determine the most important aspects of renewable energy plants that need probabilistic modeling and evaluation assessment
  • Understand the main features of the computational methods that are available for the reliability and operational performance modeling of the relevant systems
  • Understand the main  indices that need be calculated for the quantification of power system operational performance
  • Carry out practical assessment studies
  • Compare and justify alternative schemes for the reinforcement of power generation systems

 

Who is this Training Course for?

This AZTech 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:

  • Professionals of electric power utilities, system operators (Independent System Operators – ISOs, Regional Transmission Operators – RTOs, Transmission System Operators - TSOs)
  • Professionals of regulation authorities
  • Professionals of  companies involved in projects concerning renewable energy installations    
  • Power  system consultants
  • Researchers and post-graduate students of universities

 

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This AZTech 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).
