The module is based on knowledge achieved when studying the 2nd semester at the Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Engineering with specialisation in Offshore Energy Systems or similar.
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 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 work must be documented by a scientific paper (max. 8 pages) accompanied by a project summary report. The project summary report should elaborate the project details and conclusions. The maximum length of the summary report (report without appendices) is 50 pages, and in addition the summary report should follow the rules as laid down by the Study Board in “Procedure for Project Work”, i.e. the total number of pages must not exceed 30 + 15 × number of students in the project group.
The project work will consider advanced control, optimisation or diagnostic or surveillance systems for off-shore energy systems. Based on a model, the advanced control-, diagnostic or surveillance system is set up to improve the performance of the system, either with regard to power output, energy efficiency, life time extraction, fault detections, etc. The system should be implemented and verified experimentally.
Due to special technical or scientific documentation requirements, the student documents the project work in a project report, which can be prepared individually or in a group within the project theme; however the student’s special preferences for the semester must be approved by the Study Board in advance.
Since it is a 20 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 600 hours for the student
