SPIs are a subset of the abilities a student will be able to demonstrate upon successfully completing the course.
Outcome 1 (Students will demonstrate expertise in a subfield of study chosen from the fields of electrical engineering or computer engineering): 1. Understand the control and optimization concepts for electric energy systems and the hardware and software infrastructure for monitoring, controlling, optimizing and operating an electric energy system. 2. Understand models and analytics for operating the system as an open market of electricity. Outcome 2 (Students will demonstrate the ability to identify and formulate advanced problems and apply knowledge of mathematics and science to solve those problems): 1. Design a state estimation algorithm for obtaining the real time operating conditions of an electric power system 2. Design an optimization algorithm for operating an electric power system at optimal cost or at optimal voltage profile. Outcome 3 (Students will demonstrate the ability to utilize current knowledge, technology, or techniques within their chosen subfield): 1. Utilize optimization and control concepts to formulate the inclusion of inverter interfaced generating resources for optimal voltage control.
