Sobre o curso

This is a two week course. In the first week you will learn about the core activities that the Industry executes to bring electricity to customers. We will review what electricity is, how it is generated, how it is transmitted, how it comes into buildings, and how consumption of electricity instantly feeds back on the transmission and generation of electricity. You will learn to: Define what electricity is; Describe how electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed; Describe how electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed; and Summarize how the consumption of electric energy instantly feeds back on the transmission and generation of electricity. In the second week, the course shifts to the markets that drive Electric Industry operations. You will learn about the various costs of the electric industry’s core activities, how electricity is priced, the various ways that electric markets are structured, how these market structures determine which power plants are dispatched to produce electricity when, and how recent changes in generator fuel prices, generation technology, market regulations, and environmental regulations are transforming both Electric Industry Markets and Operations. You will learn to: Describe the main cost components to the electric system; Compare the costs of different types of power plants; Interpret the retail pricing of electricity; Explain the different types of electric markets and understand how they operate to dispatch electric supply to meet demand in real time; and Explain why and how the electric industry is regulated....

Content was easy to follow and digest - it was a good refresher course for me as I've been in the industry for some time, but within the IT discipline. Learned some new things along the way too.

Very informative, general introduction to the existing systems that keep our lights on; from generation, transmission, distribution, all the way to our homes and businesses. As a visual learner, the lectures could be improved by including bullet points that summarize Lincoln's word as he is presenting. Sometimes the verbiage is extensive and hard to translate into effective notetaking. Just my two cents... If you're interested in learning about this topic, take I would certainly recommend this course!

From my point of view, the course provides quite a good insight in energy field, specifically, markets and industry in general. One also can master the means of energy generation and understand the principle of power production, transmission and distribution, as well as, market.

I also should mention, that the lecturer Mr. Pratson has got a big knowledge and expertise of the field, as well as, faculty to convey them to the students.

Thank you!

Very well structured and explained, while it lacks dynamism by the lecturer; it's a good starting introduction to the industry and its complexity, oriented to beginners or as a refresh of basic concepts; the approach towards renewable energies and electrical mobility seems a bit outdated and not being given much of importance.

Many thanks to Duke University and Pr. Pratson! It was an interesting course which is aimed at broadening knowledge in the sphere of electric energy, all the companion processes and total situation at market within the country, reginal and local levels. The final project may be useful as an attachment to portfolio.

Even though its set to study the US electric Industry Operations and Markets, the course is made in a way that it explains general theory about them before going specifically to the States situation and it also starts from a very basic energy concepts explanation, so it helps to remember basics as well.
