EJ2120 Electrical Energy Conversion - Project Course 9.0 credits

Elektrisk energiomvandling - projektkurs

Offering and execution

Course offering missing for current semester as well as for previous and coming semesters

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

power electronics, electrical machines, drives and control of electrical energy conversion

Intended learning outcomes *

The aim of the course is to understand how to make a design of an electrical energy conversion application from any given set of specifications. The knowledge is applied by designing a system for an industrial application, working in a team which requires acquiring and practising project management skills.

After the course, the student should be able to :

* explain all the tasks in a design procedure of a system for electrical energy conversion

* apply parts of the procedure to design a system for a specific application

* describe the concepts of different modelling tools and apply adequate tools to predict performance of the designed system

* analyze obtained results using knowledge about the various approximations the simulation models are based on

* report and present orally the results of the project

* do a critical evaluation of the documentation produced by other students

The student should also be able to:

*organise a project for implementation of a complex task

* plan the work of a project group considering the boundaries between the project members' functions and tasks

* schedule activities so that the tasks can be performed within a set time frame and such that a uniform and equitable division of labor between project members can be achieved

Ethical approach *

  • 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.
