Problem based project organised work in groups. The project can be made in cooperation with external partners and the project can be a disciplinary project, a cross disciplinary project or a part of a multi-disciplinary project, where several groups from the department do different parts of a larger project. Finally, the project can also be a part of a so-called MEGA project also in cooperation with industry, where several project groups from more departments are participating, each doing their part of the large project to find a total solution.
The background of the project is a wind turbine system either a stand-alone or grid connected which has to be controlled under time varying loads and wind speed. Possible power quality and stability challenges are identified and formulated. The main components of the system are described and its requirements and specifications are given. The system is modelled and implemented using a simulation tool. The system is analysed with respect to power quality and stability. Methods, algorithms, devices for improving the power quality and stability of the entire system are proposed, developed and tested.
A workshop “PBL competence profile” to make an individual PBL competence profile is offered during the semester. More information can be found at www.ucpbl.net/education-courses/.
Since it is a 15 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student
