The module is based on knowledge achieved when studying the 1st semester on the Master of Science in Energy Engineering on one of the Electrical Energy Engineering specialisations 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 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 an electrical power system which has to be controlled and/or supervised (digital simulators and instrumentation systems). The system is to be described and a specification is to be made. The system should be modelled and implemented in a simulation program. Different control and/or active network management methods are to be simulated, analysed and evaluated with the purpose of selecting a solution. A complete system (or parts) should be designed and implemented as a real-time system in the laboratory or real time data should be achieved from an existing system. The implemented system and the designed control and/or active network management strategies should be tested, verified and evaluated based on the set-up in the laboratory or by real life data.
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
