The course will provide a comprehensive overview of power system operations and management, starting with a basic understanding of system economics. The course will introduce the topics and issues in today's electricity markets that will lay the foundation for an advanced course on Operation of Restructured Power Systems subsequently. Many emerging issues from power sector deregulation- such as those in system reliability and system control- shall be discussed within the course. The course will provide a perspective on power policy models and train the participant to look at technical issues of power system operation simultaneously with the economic aspects.
- To provide an understanding of operation and management of power systems,
- To introduce the participants to the emerging new electricity market issues, and
- To train participants to address technical issues in power systems in conjunction with economic issues.
Basic understanding of power system operation is required. Knowledge of mathematical programming is desirable.
