EE 137B. Introduction to Electric Power Systems
This course is the second in a two-semester series, designed to provide an overview of electric power conversion and delivery with an emphasis on developing an understanding of the electric grid as a complex interconnected system. While the first semester covers the legacy grid with a primary focus at the transmission level, EE 137B studies recent and future changes in grid design and operation, focusing on new and emerging technologies with a special emphasis on distribution systems and loads. Topics in EE 137B include power electronics applications, solar and wind generation, power distribution system design and operation, electric energy storage, demand response, and microgrids.
