Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge about modelling of fundamental mechanical, electrical and/or thermal systems
  • Have obtained comprehension of classic fundamental control theory
  • Have knowledge and experience within laboratory work on control of an energy conversion system

Skills

  • Be able to set up dynamic models of an energy conversion system and be able to implement these models in a simulation tool
  • Be able to set up specifications for a control system taking the system characteristics and limitations into account
  • Be able to apply fundamental control theory to design and dimension a controller and evaluate its applicability
  • Have knowledge about practical implementation of a controller and have understanding of the instrumentation for measuring the system conditions
  • Be able to evaluate gained theoretical results and  results from experiments based on laboratory work

Competences

  • Be able to translate the academic knowledge and skills within fundamental classic control theory to practical problems
  • Be able to engage in disciplinary and interdisciplinary cooperation within the energy control theory area related to energy systems
