The massive deployment of intermittent renewable electricity generation, the
anticipated surge of active demand response or the development of smart grids are among the
challenges that have to be faced by the mathematical models for optimization, analysis and
simulation of the complex decision making processes in power systems.This 5-session intensive course will present power system analysis techniques that will help in modeling and understanding the role of electric power systems in a carbon-constrained economy. Models will be
described in the first part of each session and they will be actually used and evaluated in the
second part. Instructors will be available afterwards for individual discussions.
