  • Grading scale

    A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.

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
