Introduction

Smart grids for smart people and smart systems

Smart grids are a new way of designing and managing electrical power systems.

Electrification of the energy system and the whole of society is the most important tool for mitigating climate change. Increasing penetration of renewable energy sources like wind and solar power, electric vehicles, and heat pumps is needed to reduce fossil carbon emissions and reduce total energy usage. Huge investments and development are ongoing in these areas at the moment globally.

Smart grids are designed to enhance the effectiveness, stability, and reliability of electrical systems and to integrate distributed energy resources into system management. They are essential for increasing the share of renewable energy sources without compromising competitiveness and system security.

The Master's Programme in Smart Grids develops systems thinking skills and provides students with a comprehensive range of technical design and analysis skills in electrical power engineering. Suitable backgrounds include Bachelor of Science (Technology) degrees in electrical power engineering, power electronics, electricity markets, energy management, renewable energy sources, or similar.

Our education is based on long-standing research in Smart Grids. Please see information about research groups Electric power systems and Smart Grids, High voltage engineering, Grid-Connected Power Electronic, Power electronics, and Electromechanics and some examples of recent research projects INTERFACE, Optimal voltage regulation, Gridable, Prosumer centric energy communities – towards energy ecosystem, Social Energy - Prosumer Centric Energy Ecosystem (ProCem) and Finnish Solar Revolution (FSR).

Smart Grids (MSc Tech) is one of the engineering specializations in the Master’s Programme in Computing Sciences and Electrical Engineering.
