BSc Project: Transmission and Conversion of Energy in Electrical Machines and Power Systems


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The module is based on knowledge achieved in the project module Design of power electronic systems or similar.

Learning objectives


  • Understand the structure and function of electrical machines and/or electric power systems, and be able to analyse these under stationary conditions and in the context of power electronic devices or systems where applicable
  • Be able to understand scientific methods and theories compared to the semester theme and be able to see the project in a larger whole


  • Be able to analyse various models and features for electrical machines or power systems and perform calculations and model these under stationary conditions
  • Have experience in laboratory work or real measured data series within electrical machines or power systems
  • Be able to analyse results from simulations and laboratory work via digital tools, and assemble them to give an overall impression of the system's performance


  • Be able to handle complex and development-oriented situations in study or work contexts within energy engineering, with particular emphasis on electric energy technology, including transfer and conversion of energy in electrical machines and/or power systems
  • Have the ability to enter into professional and interdisciplinary collaboration with a professional approach in the field of energy engineering
  • Be able to identify own learning needs and structure learning in different environments in energy engineering
  • Be able to translate academic knowledge and skills in the field of electrical energy technology to a practical problem

Type of instruction

Problem based and project organised work in groups with focus on self-critical reflection and proactive participation. The project may be discipline-oriented, interdisciplinary or part of a multidisciplinary project depending on project choice.


Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS project work, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student.
