The Master in Electric Power Distribution Systems is highly qualified to:

  • Plan the Electric Energy Distribution Systems.

  • Regulate Electric Energy Distribution Systems.

  • Operate Electric Energy Distribution Systems.

  • Identify, formulate and solve problems related to the regulation, operation and planning of Electric Power Distribution Systems, based on the use of modern methodologies, techniques, technologies and tools.

  • Use modern technologies, techniques, practices and tools for the regulation, operation and planning of Electric Energy Distribution Systems.

  • Work autonomously.

  • Analyze, synthesize, plan, organize and make decisions.

  • Manage information (ability to collect, analyze and select information from diverse sources).

  • Use software for regulation, planning and operation.

  • Recognize functional and legal aspects of the structure, organization and operation of the Colombian electricity market.

  • Relate the regulatory aspects that affect the technical aspects of energy distribution systems and electrical installations.

  • Perform interventions in companies or institutions applying the knowledge and skills acquired in the graduate program, proposing solutions to identified problems or analyzing particular situations, achieving significant changes in the indicators of compliance with the purposes of the selected institution or company, which includes the development of products and the formulation of innovation processes.

LABOR

Field

The field of action of the master in operation and planning of Electric Power Distribution Systems is constituted by the productive organizations associated to the subsector of electric power distribution, understood as state-owned, private capital or mixed economy companies that perform energy distribution activities. Within this framework, the companies of the Regional Transmission System -STR-, the companies of the Local Distribution System -SDL-, and the companies classified as non-regulated users of voltage levels II and III can be considered. It is conceived then, that the master will be able to solve problems related to the planning, operation, design, configuration and installation, automation and control of electric power distribution systems.
