1.1.1 Introduction to Smart Grid
Welcome to the first content module of the course on Smart Grids: The Basics!
In this module, we will introduce the concept of a Smart Grid and the key role it will play in the transition to a sustainable energy future. We will also discuss its transdisciplinary, complex nature and how one can model such a heterogenous system.
During this module, we shall briefly touch upon the following questions:
- What is exactly is a ‘Smart Grid’? How complex is it?
- What are the different paradigms and methods to model a ‘Smart Grid’?
- What is co-simulation? How can it be applied to model smart grids?
- What are the most commonly used software tools in the power system domain?
We wish you a fun learning experience!
