Industrial/PhD Course: New Energy technology based Integrated Energy Systems


11.02.2019 kl. 08.30 - 13.02.2019 kl. 16.00



Professor Zhe Chen - Aalborg University


Professor Zhe Chen - Aalborg University
Professor Mauro Cappelli - University of L’Aquila, Italy



The course will provide training and education on the subject of new energy technology based integrated energy systems. The Ph.D. course will include fundamental knowledge of energy sources, energy conversion systems, new energy technologies, energy system integration, transmission, and distribution. Basic techniques of analysis, operation and control will be presented. Some contents are based on up-to-date research results.

The main topics are as follows:

  • Overview of modern energy resources and systems
  • Basics of energy conversion systems
  • Renewable energy technologies
  • Basics of nuclear energy systems Instrumentation and Control (I&C)
  • Systems for Nuclear Applications
  • Advanced technologies and emerging facilities for energy system integration
  • Optimization techniques applied in integrated energy systems


General knowledge in electrical AC circuits and electrical power engineering, preferably background at the graduate level in power systems. Exercises involve Matlab.

Form of evaluation

The mini-project using MatLab and the corresponding technical report will be submitted to the lectures for evaluation after the course. Minimum requirements include the clear interpretation of the models, simulation cases and results. Plagiarism is not allowed. Similar reports will be failed. Further details will be announced during the course.




6000 DKK for PhD students outside of Denmark and 8000 DKK for the Industry.
