H) TEACHING EXPERIENCE

About fourteen (14) years teaching experience at undergraduate and graduate students of electrical engineering including seminars, tutorials and practical sessions as well as specialized industrial short courses. Subject areas include:

viñeta

Electric Power Engineering. Several specializations in power system; analysis, design, operation and control. Design, operation and maintenance of AC y DC transmission system.

viñeta

High Voltage Engineering. Insulation, overvoltage: calculation, coordination and protection. Grounding,

viñeta

Renewable Energy and Distributed Generation. Modelling and simulation. Technical and economic studies to evaluate the impact of integration in power system.

A lot of courses and teaching materials was developed (all material in Spanish, some of these materials are at: http://www.fglongatt.org.ve/CursosPreyPostgrado.html). Furthermore, course and program material have been developed, including the program of Distributed generation for the Universidad Central de Venezuela, Caracas, Venezuela (http://www.fglongatt.org.ve/Archivos/SistGD.html).

A large number of courses in the area of electrical engineering have been coordinated and supervised: Power systems, electrical machineries, electrical circuits, transmission lines, etc. These activities include: assessment, recruitment and supervision of lecturers.
