For the first time, an online training course on simulating power systems in the grid laboratory has started in Hanoi.
Lasting from 21 July until 12 August 2021, the course comprises a webinar series conducted through GridLab, an e-learning platform. In each of its total eight modules, the participants will go through such activities as presentations, exercises and simulator-based training scenarios and discussions.
The training will enhance the trainees’ skills in simulating the power system with the smart grid technologies to deal with high share of variable renewable energy (vRE) in operation activities of the power system and to improve their knowledge about power markets, structure of vRE power system and smart grid solutions as well as to broaden their understanding and skills of running power system simulation in the laboratory. The course aims to promote the application of smart grid technologies at both national and local load dispatch centers as well as in electricity regulation.
Participants are staff of the Electricity Regulatory Authority of Vietnam (ERAV), dispatchers and experts of the State-run Vietnam Electricity (EVN), National Load Dispatch Center, Regional Load Dispatch Center and Power Corporations. The training is facilitated by international experts.
The course is part of the “Smart Grids for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency” (SGREEE) bilateral cooperation project. The project is implemented by the ERAV of the Vietnam’s Ministry of Industry and Trade and GIZ Energy Support Programme. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
