À propos du cours

This is a two week course. In the first week you will learn about the core activities that the Industry executes to bring electricity to customers. We will review what electricity is, how it is generated, how it is transmitted, how it comes into buildings, and how consumption of electricity instantly feeds back on the transmission and generation of electricity. You will learn to: Define what electricity is; Describe how electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed; Describe how electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed; and Summarize how the consumption of electric energy instantly feeds back on the transmission and generation of electricity. In the second week, the course shifts to the markets that drive Electric Industry operations. You will learn about the various costs of the electric industry’s core activities, how electricity is priced, the various ways that electric markets are structured, how these market structures determine which power plants are dispatched to produce electricity when, and how recent changes in generator fuel prices, generation technology, market regulations, and environmental regulations are transforming both Electric Industry Markets and Operations. You will learn to: Describe the main cost components to the electric system; Compare the costs of different types of power plants; Interpret the retail pricing of electricity; Explain the different types of electric markets and understand how they operate to dispatch electric supply to meet demand in real time; and Explain why and how the electric industry is regulated....

Content was easy to follow and digest - it was a good refresher course for me as I've been in the industry for some time, but within the IT discipline. Learned some new things along the way too.

Excellent Course and very good explanations from the Professor.

Perhaps as a suggestion some content and graphics could be updated, with more recent data, and perhaps some of the regulatory experiences in other countries can be incorporated, as a general culture.

However, the topics under discussion are totally valid and still in force today.

Thank you.

Excellent review of the basics of electric distribution and generation all the way to grid operations and the economics related to that. Would have liked a couple real-world examples of actual state/local grid operations to put some of the knowledge to work. But presentations were clear and visual aids were helpful.

The course is a very good introduction to the Electricity sector, presenting both basics from technical and market aspects. As the industry is evolving quickly, it would be great to have modules on Demand Side Response, Battery Storage, and other new types of operation.

Good overview, somewhat light on material but that's expected from a 2 week course. would appreciate a follow up delving into more details of the financial structure of utilities/other corporations in the energy space

Hi I finished this course, but when I got my degree, only my last name was mentioned incorrectly and my name was not written. Please provide me with a new document named Mahdi Hadizadeh. Thank you

Brilliant overview of the basics of the electricity system although it couldn't definitely do with a refresh in light of the energy transition

Very informative course. It explains very well how the electric industry works in USA. It took more time than what it originally said.
