Qualification

We recommend the certificate 'Integration of Wind Power in the Electricity Supply System’ to engineers who want to work for local or regional utilities, grid operators or consultant companies that deal with the planning and integration of wind farms and who want to specialize in the integration of wind energy. On the basis of wind power forecasting, students will learn how to optimize the scheduling of the conventional and renewable energies power stations mix. Another learning outcome will be the planning of future electricity grids of power supply systems with a large amount of renewables.
