The module is based on knowledge achieved when studying the 1st semester on the Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering with specialisation in Offshore Energy Systems or similar.
Problem based project organised work in groups. The students focus on proficient project leadership and management when finding their technical solution. The project can be made in cooperation with external partners and the project can be a disciplinary project, a cross disciplinary project or 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 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 project should be based on an offshore energy system which includes fluid power, electrical, mechanical and/or thermal etc. components to be modelled, analysed and controlled. This could e.g. be a wave energy system, offshore oil & gas, offshore wind turbines, or their subsystems, etc. The systems should be analysed and a mathematical simulation model should be developed for the system. Based on the model, the system is analysed with regard to efficiency, technology choices and technology interaction. The analysis is the basis for setting up a control system and making a design or redesign of the system, or selected parts hereof. The design may take its basis in the existing system (optimised redesign) or may include new solutions or designs and control methods.
In both cases emphasis is placed on the fact that the system is improved with regard to efficiency and system performance. The developed design and control method, or the essential parts hereof, may be experimentally verified, either in model scale or on the real system, if possible.
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
