Abstract

Over the last few years, smart (power) grids course has become a part of the electrical and computer engineering curriculum. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the smart grids, teaching methods and materials vary significantly across universities. In this paper, we present our experience in teaching smart power grids course at the division sustainable development at Hamad Bin Khalifa University. The class was offered during Fall 2016 and 2017 semesters and the class roster was composed of graduate students with diverse engineering backgrounds such as electrical, mechanical, chemical, petroleum, and materials science. Special attention has been given to smart grid applications that require end-user involvement such as distributed renewable integration, electric vehicles, and demand-side management programs. This paper further presents sample assignments and projects.
