Smart Grid: here is the degree course

The degree course in Smart Grid for the training of electrical engineers specialized in 'smart grids'Of' smart cities'. Objective: to govern the new model of distributed generation of energy and the new uses of the electric vector, electric mobility in the first place.

Contents and rules of the degree course in Smart Grid, at a master's level, were defined starting from the agreement signed by Enel Distribuzione and Politecnico di Milano as part of the scientific collaboration already in place on energy issues.

The start of the 2014-2015 academic year: the course of study called Master's Degree Course in Electrical Engineering oriented to Smart Grids it will be edited by the teachers of the PoliMi and integrated by the skills of Enel Distribuzione. It will be held in English and will be reserved for 25 students for the first year.

The duration of the course is two years. In the first year, the study plan includes courses focused on the typical issues of widespread generation electricity distribution networks, i.e. Smart Grid. The second year focuses on the typical processes of energy distributors, including Enel, with the aim of improving the quality of service to citizens-users for efficient use of energy.

The goal of Degree in Smart Grid is the training of professionals able to manage the energy cycle with a multidisciplinary approach and in an increasingly international scenario. The progress of the project will be monitored by an Operating Committee of five people: three from the Politecnico di Milano and two from Enel Distribuzione.

The Smart Grid the citizen is increasingly a reality, an opportunity for companies in the sector and now also a precise work-professional outlet. The innovation that has pushed them the most in recent years is certainly constituted by the 'widespread generation', or 'distributed generation' of energy which has affected the distribution networks and electrical systems.

Great impetus for the development of Smart Grid Non-programmable renewable energy sources (FRNP) have given it, introducing both technical (safety, voltage regulation methods, availability) and economic (programming of the Day Ahead Market and the Market for the Dispatching Service) ).
