In collaboration with IEEE- IES, and Horizon Europe project SUNRISE, we have developed this course which covers the design aspects of the power electronic converters used for DC applications, control of the power systems with the high penetration of renewable energy sources, and their protection. The focus of the course is on “the description of the Transmission System Operator (TSO) and maintenance of the electrical grid with high voltage (HV) ratings”.

This initiative was proposed by Prof. Morgan Kiani and approved by IES AdCom in October 2023. IEEE- IES members can watch this educational content for free and earn educational credits. After answering a short quiz, viewers can earn 76.00 PDH – Professional Development Hour.

51 new videos, as a part of the course on “Control and Protection of HVDC/AC Electrical Grids”, are now online on the IES Resource Center!


Short course videos are provided with transcript, slides and with the library of models available in GitHub


This short course has been proposed by Professor Aleksandra Lekić, TU Delft | University of Technology in the Netherlands and managed by the IES Multimedia Committee, Chaired by Professor Morgan Kiani.

The course is presented by 16 lecturers from 4 different universities (Delft University of Technology, University of Seville, University of Belgrade, and University of the Basque Country), 3 companies (TenneT, DNV, and Siemens Energy) from 4 European countries (Netherlands, Spain, Serbia, and Germany).

Each short course video is provided with its transcript and slides, and the model library is available on GitHub. The videos cover both theoretical and practical implementation of control and protection algorithms using both offline and hardware-in-the-loop platforms:



Delft University of Technology was responsible for creating the course in collaboration with the NewMedia Centre.
