Course Description

This engineering course presents a deep-dive into the Smart Grid dimensions of Distributed Energy and Electric Energy Storage, collectively termed Distributed Energy Resources or DERs.

You will learn about the various types of DERs and their characteristics, as well as various storage technologies, their level of maturity, and their application along the electric value chain.

We will present an analysis of the energy market size and global revenue forecast. You will learn through real world case studies to help you better understand the mechanism of integrating DERs to the grid using power electronics. We will also discuss Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) mandates and explain how DERs factor into them.

Verified students are eligible to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs), valid toward continuing education requirements for many professional certifications.

Tests and exams are not aligned to material presented in the course. Whole course is the collection of several slides with multiple abbreviations and presenter just reads them out loud. I ended up downloading transcripts and read through them

The course has not been gone through by the creators before presenting it to the public. There are dissimilarites between different sections. For example, you are constantly told that a Smart Grid makes the network more reliable, while later on you get to know that this is definetly not always the case. Additionally, there are mistakes in the quizzes and even the final exam. The staff is not present AT ALL in discussions. They haven't replied to any of the discussions so far, even if they are directly targeted at staff.

Well, it would really nice if some new content was provided. Interactive sessions are very nice. I understand IEEE has professionals and not lecturers but, there could be tie ups with some, because whenever a course by IEEE is taken, it is natural to expect at a raised bar. Also, some case studies (sans the statistics, like it was done here) would help, especially from developing countries like India. I managed a 75% overall without much delving into the lectures. Thank you.
