Description and contextualization of the subject

This course intends to analyze the operation and planning of transmission and distribution networks. This way, classical aspects regarding network operation, the different network states and their main features will be analyzed. New stakeholders, procedures and technologies will be studied. These aspects are currently being developed and will affect future network definition and operation. Special stress will be put on Smart Grids.

The main objective of the course is to provide students with the knowledge of the operation of distribution and transmission grids

Ordinary call: orientations and renunciation

Along the course several activities will be developed:

- Dynamics and deliverables 80 %

- Group work 20 %

Assessment:

Procedures for assessment of the course are:

1. Through active participation in class.

2. By conducting dynamics and group works

Lessons will follow a continous evaluation, for which different dynamics, deliverables and group works will be conducted.

In order to renounce to the continuous evaluation and opt for the final evaluation system, a waiver must be submitted

(addressed to the course coordinator) no later than a week before the official ordinary call exam. In case the continuous

evaluation is renounced, a final exam that includes 100 % of the course activities must be done.

Extraordinary call: orientations and renunciation

In the extraordinary call students can choose between continuous evaluation (by default) and a single exam that evaluates 100 % of the course activities. The chosen option must be communicated 2 weeks before the exam date.

In order to renounce to the call, a waiver must be submitted (addressed to the master´s academic commission) no later than a week before the official extraordinary call exam.
