Flexible Energy Technology

The transition from traditional power generation to renewable energy sources requires an increase in the operational flexibility of the network. Renewable energy sources, such as wind or photovoltaic are either cyclical, or they have a fluctuating power level. In order to guarantee a sufficient and reliable energy supply, the energy supply needs to be matched to the energy demands at all times for the integrated gas, heat and electricity networks. Energy sources are combined and changing from large centralized sources to local integrated sources with, or without, storage facilities. As a result, the requirements with respect to the operational flexibility of traditional power generators become more demanding. In addition, new energy network concepts, either AC or DC for transmission, conversion and storage need to be further developed.

In this minor all aspects of generation, transport, distribution and control of electrical networks for modern grids, either Low Voltage or High Voltage, are studied. However the emphasis is on electrical aspects. Only students in Electrical Engineering can apply.


The programme consists of four courses: Power System Design, Power System Components, Renewable Energy and Power Conversion & Power Quality. 

The first two courses put emphasis on “classic” electrical grids, power generation and calculation methods, while the other two are giving in depth knowledge about renewable systems and the power quality aspects that come with modern electrical grids.

With guest lectures, excursions, theoretical and practical assignments you will get in depth knowledge of the subject. Throughout the semester the students will work in groups on an assignment in designing a modern grid.
