EI3250 Electrotechnical Modeling, PhD Course 8.0 credits

Elektroteknisk modellering, doktorandkurs

The course covers modeling approaching used in electrical engineering including multiphysical FEM modeling, Multiphysical lumped element modeling, magnetic hysteresis modeling. The course is intended for PhD students whose research topic is closely related modeling of electrical power components. The course is an extension of EI2433 providing a more in depth-coverage of the topics as well as additional topics.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student should be able to:

  • describe basic modelling approaches applicable within electrotechnology
  • by use of electrotechnical models foresee the function of electrotechnical equipment
  • by use of electrotechnical models analyse the properties of electrotechnical apparatus,
  • assess the applicability of a given electrotechnical model.
  • contribute to the research frontier in the area
