Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The module is based on knowledge achieved in the project module Energy systems of the future or similar

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • Have knowledge and comprehension within the development of an energy engineering product, a machine and/or components
  • Have knowledge and understanding within its functional principles and their application
  • Have knowledge of how to set up a specification requirement for a product
  • Understand fundamental principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, energy conversion and storage

Skills

  • Be able to select, describe and apply relevant technical, scientific and contextual models, theories and methods to analyse and solve a chosen energy engineering problem
  • Be able to solve the chosen energy engineering problem including relevant contexts and/or perspectives
  • Be able to make a critical evaluation of the relevance of the gathered knowledge in relation to the project work and evaluate the applicability of the chosen models, theories and/or methods
  • Be able to make a methodical and consequent evaluation of the energy engineering product technically and socially
  • Be able to set up simulation models for selected parts of a product
  • Be able to make practical test of the product in the laboratory or apply relevant data from other experimental work
  • Be able to analyse the achieved test results or the collected data and compare these with the simulated values
  • Be able to analyse and develop technical solutions in a sustainable perspective

Competences

  • Be able to plan, manage and put the project work into perspective to consider further course of study
  • Be able to make a systematic choice of methods for acquisition of knowledge in connection with problem analysis and problem-solving in an energy engineering problem

Type of instruction

Problem-based and project-oriented project work in groups. Documentation of applied data must be attached to the P2 project report in the form of well-structured and methodical journals. The project work is documented in a P2 project report, preparation of a P2 process analysis and participation in a presentation seminar.

Extent and expected workload

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