Presentation

The « EES » MOST "Electrical Energy Systems" aims to provide professional training (type of activity: design offices, R & D, production, operations). It naturally offers the opportunity of a studies continuation at PHD level, in the field of Electrical Engineering and its applications related to energy processes.

Objectives

  • Proficiency  of modeling tools for the analysis of multi-physics problems
  • Ability to manage and monitor energy systems, modeling techniques, optimization, acquisition and processing of data
  • Ability to model static or electromechanical converters using analytical models or computer simulation codes
  • Expertise in the fields of power electronics, power semiconductors and power grids, with the ability to design and implement static conversion systems,
  • Expertise in the field of electricity and electrical engineering specifically oriented towards production, conversion, distribution and storage of energy.
  • Ability to address the issue of renewable energy in their principles but also of their organizations, their management and their integration into the distribution networks
  • Skills for control, observation and diagnosis of dynamic multi-technology systems
    • Ability to design a system taking into account the environmental and social requirements (eco-design and sustainable development)
