Course Content

Electrification is the process of powering by electricity, is usually associated with changing over from another power source, and has been regarded as the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th Century. This module is intended to provide module participants with the new knowledge and competency in modern electrification techniques and applications in built environment and land transportation. The contents of this module are delivered in three focused areas: Modern Electrification Technologies Electrification is currently spearheaded by advanced new technologies in both AC and DC power systems which allowed greater resilience, flexibility and safety while meeting new forms of electric demand. Game-changing technologies include the advent of energy storage systems and smart power interconnects. Advanced Electrification for Land Transportation To reduce carbon footprint and pollution in the cities, the growth of electrified urban rail systems has been increasing tremendously in recent years. Advance railway electric power systems and electric propulsion are essential to the sustained growth and operation of urban railways. There is also very strong interest in various forms of electric vehicles and their charging infrastructure and alternative fuel supply. Advanced Electrification for Built Environment - Distributed energy resources such as solar photovoltaic systems, tri-generation and energy storage systems are increasingly incorporated into urban electrification. There has also been much in-roads made in achieving higher energy efficiency and demand management in urban electrification loads through district cooling techniques and intelligent solid-state lighting.
