INESC TEC organised training course in the area of advanced analytical tools for energy systems
The Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES) of INESC TEC organised, under the EES-UETP (Electric Energy Systems – University Enterprise Training Program) consortium, the advanced training course “Advanced Data Analytics for Energy Systems”, which took place on 3, 4 and 5 September at the INESC TEC’s headquarters.
07th September 2018
The training course, which intends to provide advanced training in the domain of the knowledge extraction from data, optimisation and decision support and artificial intelligence, had the participation of several international trainers, as well as elements from CPES, EDP Inovação and REN.
Several theoretical and practical aspects were addressed, namely knowledge processing and extraction from real-time data, statistical models for the probabilistic time series forecasting, optimisation and decision support from data. Finally, the industry challenges were also addressed (transmission system operator, utilities, energy service companies), such as the management of assets, the distribution networks operation, the participation in the electricity market and the engagement of the consumers in the active consumption management.
The training course gathered about 28 participants from 16 countries, and it is relevant to highlight the presence of two elements from the RTE (France), one element from the DIgSILENT (Germany), an element from the EDF (France), an element from the Ormazabal Corporate Technology (Spain) and another from the CESI SpA (Italy). The national industry of the power system sector was represented by EDP Produção and EDP Inovação. The remaining participants were from several European universities and from the University of Queensland (Australia).
Ricardo Bessa and Paula Castro, both from the Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES), were responsible for the organisation of the training course.
