Power System Operation and Planning for Enhanced Wind Generation Penetration - Collaborative Work Force Development

Project: Research project

Description

This proposal is a collaborative effort between Arizona State University (ASU), Iowa State University (ISU), and the California ISO (CAISO) to address the critical issue of work force development specifically dealing with the training of power system engineers to enable power system operation and planning for enhanced wind generation penetration. The activities in the proposed project target the following five critical areas: 1. Attracting high school students into an electric energy curriculum stream 2. Attracting electrical engineering students in the sophomore year into an electric energy elective stream 3. Tailoring the electric energy and power systems undergraduate curriculum to include topics related to power system operation and planning including high wind penetration 4. Tailoring the electric energy and power systems graduate curriculum to include topics related to power system operation and planning including high wind penetration 5. Developing continuing education offerings with the industrial partner to foster lifelong learning of engineers in industry including topics related to power system operation and planning including high wind penetration
