Content and learning outcomes
the course is implemented in project groups with 3-8 students. After an introduction including modelling methods as well as project management the groups are assigned project works related to the development of new electric power technology components and systems. Course's main implementation happens through work with these. Since the different project assignments require different knowledge, the first task is to identify the specific knowledge need in each individual project group. Gathering of necessary knowledge comes partly through direct participation in the given courses, but it is in many cases necessary to by oneself find and absorb these knowledge that is available in the form of course material for the given courses.
Another task is that within the group distribute the work, to acquire the for the project necessary knowledge as well as to make a time planning for implementation of project. The project assignments consist of theoretically investigate whether a proposed technical solution of a problem related to an electric power technology component or a system is possible to implement practically. This study shall then be verified experimentally by means of a scaled down conceptual prototype, a physical arrangement, or computer simulation.
To limit the extent of the experimental part, the theoretical study is used to identify what is critical for the proposal solution to be implemented in a practical application. Since limited resources are available for the experimental work, it is necessary to use and interpret the results that come from the theoretical study.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student should be able to:
- organise a project group for implementation of a complex task
- plan a project group's work with respect to demarcations between project members' functions and assignments
- give an account of the importance of feedback for a group development and give and receive feedback
- plan so that work can be carried out within a given time frame and so that an even and just work distribution between project members is achieved
- in writing report status of a project at predetermined times
- write a project report, including background, working method, implementation, achieved results and conclusions
- evaluate the quality of a performed project work
- in oral form present a project for a client and a general public
- discuss and give examples of how an electric power system can be developed to contribute to a sustainable society
in order to be able to define, plan, and implement a technical feasability study with respect to proposed electric power technical components and systems.
Literature and preparations
Knowledge equivalent to at least two completed courses of courses EG2100, EG2200, EH2741, EI2436, EJ2301, EJ2201 or the equivalent.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PRO1 - Project assignment, 2.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- PRO2 - Project assignment, 7.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
