This module aims to provide participants with applied knowledge and skills on the broad range of technologies and multi-disciplinary integrative strategies. This knowledge is necessary to implement more intelligent power systems of the near-future, which can be more resilient, energy-efficient, cyber-secure, interoperable and can accommodate higher penetration of renewables while enhancing the electrification experience of consumers.

The technologies include sensing & instrumentation, communications and machine intelligence, which are crucial to making power networks smart, regardless whether the power networks are large or small, grid-connected or standalone. Before the Smart Grid becomes ubiquitous, it is also important to understand cyber-security issues and implement processes to address them at the early stage.

These modules are stackable towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Electrical Power Engineering (PGCert EPE) or can be taken individually as a single module as follows:

Each module carries 6 ECTS credits which are stackable for graduate qualification of PGCert EPE. Candidates who pass any of the above 4 modules (totalling 24 credits) with a CGPA of 2.5 or more will be awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Electrical Power Engineering (PGCert EPE) by SIT. All the above modules are subsidised by SkillsFuture Singapore. Eligible individual may enjoy up to a maximum of 5 subsidised modules.

The above modules have been renamed from EPE60XX to EEE60XX for modules starting from Sep 2019. There is otherwise no change in stackability towards the Postgraduate Certificate in Electrical Power Engineering
