Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Understand the structure and function of electrical machines and/or electric power systems, and be able to analyse these under stationary conditions and in the context of power electronic devices or systems where applicable
  • Be able to understand scientific methods and theories compared to the semester theme

Skills

  • Be able to analyse various models and features for electrical machines or power systems and perform calculations and model these under stationary conditions
  • Have experience in laboratory work on electrical machines or power systems
  • Be able to analyse results from simulations and laboratory work, and assemble them to give an overall impression of the system's performance

Competences

  • Be able to handle complex and development-oriented situations in study or work contexts within energy engineering, with particular emphasis on electric energy technology, including transfer and conversion of energy in electrical machines and/or power systems
  • Have the ability to enter into professional and interdisciplinary collaboration with a professional approach in the field of energy engineering
  • Be able to identify own learning needs and structure learning in different environments in energy engineering
  • Be able to translate academic knowledge and skills in the field of electrical energy technology to a practical problem

Type of instruction

Problem based and project oriented work in project groups. Teaching is in English and/or Danish depending on the participation of international students, or if the lecturer is of foreign origin.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS project work, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student.
