Professors Andrés Ramos y Javier García teach a new edition of the course “Decision Support Models for Low-Carbon Electric Power Systems” at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The first edition (of approximately 40 h) took place in January 2010, and since then they have been teaching it every year in various ways. The objective of the course is to review the decision-support models currently used in the electric industry covering several time scopes and regulatory frameworks in the context of a low-carbon economy. The course design facilitates the students to understand the mathematical techniques used in these models, the assimilation of the concepts by using the prototypes developed at IIT, and the supervision of the students to help them creating their own models according to their specific needs.
