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 Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering with specialisation in Offshore Energy Systems or the Master in Advanced Power Electronics.
The course is taught by a mixture of lectures, workshops, exercises, mini-projects and self-studies including e-learning activities. Instead of using complicated mathematical equations and electromagnetic theory, particularly-made Finite Element Models visualizing the electromagnetic field behaviour inside a machine will be used to give an easy but deep access to many difficult topics involved in the electrical machine theory. Various advanced sensorless control technologies developed in recent years will be discussed for permanent magnet machine and synchronous reluctance machine (which has received great interests in recent years). Achievements obtained from recent PhD projects carried out at the department will be presented.
Since it is a 5 ECTS course module, the work load is expected to be 150 hours for the student.
