Future Power System in Denmark

2018/2019

Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module is based on knowledge achieved when studying the 2nd semester on the Master of Science in Energy Engineering with an electrical specialisation or similar.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge and understanding within the technique of the grid and system challenges that the electricity power system in Denmark is expected to face in the future in terms of design and system operation.

Skills

  • Be able to explain the grid technique and systemic challenges of electricity supply in Denmark in the future facing, both design and / or terms of system operation
  • Be able to analyse and assess the structure, composition, interaction and mutual influence between the relevant parts of the electricity grid and power system in one or more of the fields distribution, transmission, production and consumption
  • Be able to use and through that become familiar with earlier learned electrical power system theory
  • Be able to identify, evaluate, and argue for changes in existing power system facilities taking into consideration high personal security, high continuity of supply and finance

Type of instruction

The course will include lectures; guest-lectures; team work; web-conferences/question time; and conference. With starting point in Denmark's existing electrical power system, and known political objectives and decisions for Denmark (at regional or national level), students must analyse their way through to a concrete solution for the future electricity supply in Denmark, based on the course's theme and within a more defined, self-elected project focus.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 5 ECTS course module, the work load is expected to be 150 hours for the student.
