Smart Grids

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School

This postgraduate course can be attended as part of the master's degree Enertronics.

Shortly we will publish updated information about the new edition of this programme.

Nobody could question that among the major challenges facing humanity is the challenge of providing a solution to energy systems. Our future largely depends on our ability to identify and manage future energy techniques. Electronic, IT and communication technologies must be included in the design of the energy systems of the coming years. This innovative concept, which enables integrated solutions to be identified, has been termed Enertronics.

This is a concept which brings together different technologies in topics such as power electronics, communications automation, electrical systems energy, and programming and microprocessor technologies, all of which are aspects which companies require from their professionals. Nowadays organisations require the figure of the enertronic engineer who, when thinking of a solution to an energy system, also takes the electrical part or the bit microprocessor programming into account.

This postgraduate course in Smart Grids, which is part of the Masters programme, covers all of the major aspects for being able to design, analyse and control intelligent electricity grids (smart grids). Both the economic aspects and those most related to control and power electronics technology will be analysed.


  • To analyse and plan energy systems taking economic and technical restrictions into account.
  • To integrate electronics, IT and communications technologies into the design of an energy system.
  • To design energy systems taking the available needs and resources into account.
  • To automate and control the operation of energy systems.

Who is it for

  • Recent engineer graduates who wish to steer their career towards the energy sector.
  • Experienced professionals who are seeking an overview of energy systems and to learn about enertronics .
  • Industrial engineers from various specialisations.
