European Master in Dynamics of Renewables-based Power Systems (DREAM)


European Master in Dynamics of Renewables-based Power Systems (DREAM) is a 2-year Master programme that offers multidisciplinary education in the modern power systems field. It trains students to tackle in a new way the actual and future challenges of smart power systems. Therefore, kernel knowledge from the fields of Power Systems, Smart Grids, Renewable Generation, Automatic Control, and Power Electronics is combined to give to the students the opportunity to acquire a global “system view” of the dynamics of the next generation of power systems.

DREAM is a joint master programme implemented and fully supported by 4 major European Higher Education Institutions (HEI):

  1. Ecole Centrale Nantes, France (Coordinator)
  2. Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain
  3. Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft, Germany and 
  4. Universitatea Politehnica din Bucuresti, Romania

Main DREAM aims are:

  • To promote a more integrated way of thinking which is the system view in order to form multidisciplinary specialists trained for the new jobs and challenges of future power systems
  • To respond to the European Commission expectations and objectives in increasing the share of renewable generation and reach the energy and climate targets 

DREAM students will spend their first semester in France to acquire a background in Power Systems and Automatic Control and will move for the second semester to Germany, Spain or Romania.

The third semester can be done in any of the partners HEI, by choosing one of the following specialties:

  • Smart grids dynamics and control
  • transmission/ distribution/microgrids (France)
  • Advanced wind turbine control, protection systems (Germany)
  • Power electronics in power systems (Spain)
  • Smart power systems (Romania)

The mobility scheme will thus consist in visiting 2 or 3 EU countries in the first 3 semesters. Semester 4 is devoted to the Master’s Thesis. The students will then receive double or triple degrees from the institution they studied in.
