Abstract

Korea plans to be the world's first country to transform its electricity network into "smart grids," which use information and operational technologies to help to facilitate the reduction of carbon emissions, make more efficient use of existing infrastructure/resources through meeting customer demand/less generation, and support renewable resources with real time monitoring and controls. In this situation, universities do the needful on priority to nurture smart grid engineers who will be responsible for state-of-the-art technologies as today's electric grid transitions to a digital network. This paper thus attempts to permanently turn out high-quality human resources in electrical engineering by fleshing out strategies for training smart electric grid engineers, based on lessons from a national undertaking of nurturing qualified power IT engineers starting on February 1 of 2007.
