level of course unit
Learning outcomes of course unit
Graduates are able to identify basic features of network planning, network maintenance and network operation, qualitatively and quantitatively
describe technical and economic impacts of feed-in and consumption in an electric network for the transmission and distribution of electric energy, identify current development trends and classify these in regard to their application.
Graduates are familiar with the basic features of incentive regulations.
prerequisites and co-requisites
Introduction to Energy Business
The lecture conveys the most essential technical and economic aspects of the transmission and distribution of electrical energy (landline, cable). The tasks of network operators and the function of network regulation (incentive regulation) are explained. Students learn the basic features of network planning, network maintenance and network operation. They apply pointer-diagram methods in order to estimate the impacts of feed-in and consumption on voltage, effective-power and idle-power flow. Elements for network access and network usage as well as current trends are introduced.
