Advanced Training

Organising lectures and training activities on emerging issues as part of projects with international consortiums, European projects or on request from companies.

The Centre for Power and Energy Systems (CPES) is composed of Professors from the Faculty of Engineering (FEUP), and other faculties from the University of Porto and international researchers that have strong scientific and technical competencies which have been consolidated through our participation in varied projects and development contracts. These competencies enable us to provide training activities on emerging issues relating to Electrical Power Systems. Recent examples of these activities include:

  • Organising five courses within the scope of the EES-UETP European consortium (Electric Energy Systems – University Enterprise Training Partnership);
  • Participating in various TEMPUS projects funded by the European Union;
  • Participating in projects funded by the CYTED programme and directed at countries in Latin America;
  • Organising advanced training activities in 2004 for the Bulgarian energy regulator, funded by USAID (the United States Agency for International Development);
  • Organising internal courses, for example the 2007 course on “Regulation and Electricity Markets” that took place at the Portuguese electricity company Electricidade dos Açores and also the course aimed at researchers working at an Electricity company in Macau in 1998.
