What's Included

This program is sponsored by the CURENT Engineering Research Center. Learn about how the electric grid is being adapted to incorporate renewable sources such as solar arrays and wind turbine farms. Students will use a simulation tool to explore how the grid responds to loss of equipment and extreme power demands when these problems might lead to blackouts. A market experiment on pricing electricity is also part of the program. In addition students will learn about computer networks and cyber security. Students will work with Rensselaer faculty and graduate students on hands on activities and go on a tour of power grid manufacturing or control facilities.
