Who should attend

This course is intended for all technical staff, engineers, and managers from electric power utilities, independent generating companies including renewable sources, electricity regulations, system operators, industrial customers, manufacturing and consulting companies as well as educational and research institution who deal with the planning and operation issues of modern power systems.

About the course

The conventional method of power system planning relies on the minimization of system costs subject to meeting given levels of demand and reliability, as well as other constraints. This course covers power system planning, economics, operation and management issues as well as reliability in deregulated environment. The course will give a comprehensive overview of power system reliability. Evaluation of generation, transmission and distribution system reliability and their impacts on system planning will be covered. It will address the factors affecting power system expansion planning, operation and management as well as reliability in an electricity market including system adequacy, security, ancillary services market, decision making and other management issues.

The course is designed to develop an in-depth understanding of key economic and other concepts related to electric utility planning and to expose the participants to modern approaches of electricity planning, electricity pricing and environmental implications of alternative power development plans.

The goal for this course is to give the participants knowledge on how to use economic and reliability analysis as a tool for decision support during planning, design, operation and maintenance of electric power systems.

Course Objectives

Upon the successful completion of this course, each participants will be able to:

  • Apply and gain an in-depth knowledge on power system planning and economics
  • Discuss the nature of planning in electricity sector and the hierarchy of electricity planning models
  • llustrate electricity demand forecasting and review the load forecasting techniques and guidelines for selection
  • Describe the economic operation of power system and employ the planning methods properly
  • Employ the various electricity pricing approaches
  • Determine the value-based transmission expansion by quantifying the value of transmission
  • Formulate power-flow problem covering techniques for power-flow studies
