Demand Response & Renewables Integration in EPS

EEE 598 Demand Response and Renewables Integration
Instructor: Prof. Anna Scaglione, ECE
This course aim is introducing how power, economic and
information/computations flows support our current energy
infrastructure and highlight the path towards new models to increase
the penetration of renewable power and lower the need for fossil fuels.
Prerequisites: The course is self-contained but it would be helpful to
have background on Fourier Transforms and Linear Systems and
Probability and Statistics. No prior knowledge on power systems is
