    Microgrid Dynamics, Modeling and Control

    The Smart/Micro Grids Research Center (SMGRC) at the University of Kurdistan offers a workshop on microgrids entitled ‘Microgrids: Dynamics Operation and Control’. This workshop will provide both theoretical knowledge and practical foundation for the understanding of Microgrids. Different aspects of these small-scale power systems, current challenges and research directions will be examined in detail with the focus on the following topics:

    • Modern Grids vs Traditional Power Grids
    • Microgrids: Concept, Structure and Operation Modes
    • Microgrid Planning and Operation
    • Microgrids: Dynamics and Modeling
    • Microgrid Control
    • Grid-Connected RESs and Ancillary Services
    • Virtual Inertia
    • Dynamic Impact on Power Systems

    Note: Around 25% of the time will be spent in exercises and simulations provided by the lecturers. Selected simulation models will be included in the course material for the participants.
