Course Content:

This module aims to provide participants with applied knowledge and skills on the broad range of technologies and multi-disciplinary integrative strategies. This knowledge is necessary to implement more intelligent power systems of the near-future, which can be more resilient, energy-efficient, cyber-secure, interoperable and can accommodate higher penetration of renewables while enhancing the electrification experience of consumers.

The technologies include sensing & instrumentation, communications and machine intelligence, which are crucial to making power networks smart, regardless whether the power networks are large or small, grid-connected or standalone. Before the Smart Grid becomes ubiquitous, it is also important to understand cyber-security issues and implement processes to address them at the early stage.

Minimum Entry Requirement:

- Bachelor degree in Engineering
- At least one year of relevant working experience
