This is a
so-called masterclass in the area of advance, giving an overview of
the smart grid and important technologies from the Information and
Communication Technologies (ICT) area that is being used. The focus is on
algorithms, distributed computing, communication and security.
In Europe and
elsewhere, the electrical grid is being transitioned into the "smart
grid" in order to increase flexibility and accommodate large scale energy
production from renewable sources. This transition involves, among other steps,
the installation of new, advanced equipment - for example, the replacement of
traditional domestic electrical meters with smart meters - and remote
communication with devices - for example, allowing remote access to an
unsupervised energy production site.
The course is
built around (i) seminars and (ii)
project work. Through the seminars you learn about the design or
development of systems, infrastructure, and applications that are related to
the electric power smart grid, with a focus on distributed algorithms and
security. You are expected to give some presentations, as well as to
participate actively in discussions. Through the second part of the course, you are also expected to complete lab work, i.e. a
significant project with relevance to the smart grid. In this way you will also
gain experience at the front connecting research and education in the main
domain overlapping two of the Areas of Advance, namely ICT and Energy. Through
your presentations, you will also get feedback and learn to better present
materials to your peers. Through your report, you will improve your skills in
technical writing (a good preparation for DAT147 in the fall).
Recommended text book
The course is built around seminars, lecture notes and
The course will be based on a series of scientific articles, both to
give an introduction to our work and then support you in your respective
projects. We have started to assemble a list of papers from which you can
choose. The list of papers are found here. http://www.cse.chalmers.se/edu/course/DAT300/papers.html
For both presentations and project report, please take a careful look at
the lectures/instructions at the technical writing course: http://www.cse.chalmers.se/edu/year/2014/course/DAT147/
major part of the course will evolve around the projects (see here for suggestions http://www.cse.chalmers.se/edu/course/DAT300/projects.html
). Our idea is that this should be a
hands-on approach, but for each project we also expect you to read scientific
papers. These will help you for the implementation but also show research
problems. We know that the seven weeks will go by very quickly, so we will also
allow you to demonstrate your project after the summer break if you prefer
that. We are in the process of extending our testbed,
and we can promise you some cool gadgets for you to build your project upon.

course material is electronically available. Please note that the slides alone
do not give a full coverage of the course contents. Link to the slides: http://www.cse.chalmers.se/edu/course/DAT300/SLIDESNOTES/
The course meetings are mainly in room 3364 (the EDIT room), next to Linsen. A few instances will take place in another location,
which will be highlighted on the meeting list below. As per the course memo, we
will not use all slots marked in time edit as the second part of the course
will be focused on your project.
We will try
to accomodate the meeting times for the course based
on the students that participates. We have now booked three slots per week:
Tuesdays 10--12; Thursdays 15--17, and Friday 10--12. We will move the slots so
you can also participate in this class if there are still collisions. Just come
to the first meeting and we will reschedule the times if possible.
The presentation schedule can be found on the papers page, including resources for guidelines to prepare
presentations and the link to the form for evaluating a presentation as
