Why Choose this Training Course?

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 training course in Dubai is to describe the most important areas that need probabilistic modelling and evaluation assessment.

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 (analytical techniques, simulation approaches)
  • Description of the appropriate sets of reliability 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 Systems in the competitive market environment

 

What are the Goals?

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

  • Determine the most important areas of power systems that need probabilistic modeling and evaluation assessment
  • Understand the main features of the computational methods that are available for the reliability modeling
  • Understand the main reliability indices that need be calculated for the quantification of  load point and  system performance
  • Carry out practical reliability assessment studies
  • Compare and justify alternative schemes for power system reinforcement

 

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 large industrial and commercial companies
  • 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).
