We're launching the first Grid Integration and GPS Studies of Renewables in PSCAD short course in 2021. In this course, you'll learn about timely and emerging technologies in the power industry. Register today to join the inaugural cohort and enhance your career prospects in a field contributing to the future of energy.

About this course

Delivered in partnership with Electric Energy Society of Australia (EESA), and Vysus Group, this course combines several timely topics in power engineering, and the grid integration of renewable energy resources, such as wind and solar. The course primarily focuses on power electronic converters, their control, and PSCAD-related National Electricity Rules (NER) clauses in generator performance standards (GPS). You'll learn to build and model the components for a grid connected voltage source converter (VSC) in PSCAD, and then progress into introducing and investigating the PSCAD NER Clauses found within the AEMO Connection Application Checklist.

Industry insights

We're up to date with the latest in the industry. This short course will feature presentations by established grid connection consultants. In addition, the course features a line up of industry guest speakers, from market operators and consultants, to original equipment manufacturers.

You will learn

  • Fundamentals of grid-following (GFL) and grid-forming (GFM) VSCs
  • The components required to build a grid-connected VSC
  • Various control techniques of both GFL and GFM systems
  • Modelling and control of VSC applications using PSCAD
  • Applications of VSCs, including grid forming inverters
  • The PSCAD NER Clauses within an generator connection application
  • How to frame GPS tests in PSCAD
  • Foundational knowledge required for a grid connection engineer
  • Generating system performance metrics notably at the point of connection

Prepare yourself for the future of the power grid and apply today
