Master programme

Electrical Power Engineering and System Integration

Participating Studies: Sustainable Energy Technology (MSc-SET), Mechanical Engineering (MSc-ME)

Course Description

Electrical Power Engineering and System Integration” aims to provide the student with the basic knowledge needed to solve specific problems arising in the distributed generation of electricity.
The course is an introduction to modern electrical power systems and networks. It starts with the discussion of the basic components that are commonly encountered and with network analysis (basics of 1- and 3-phase system; simple grid model; active and reactive power; electrical power networks). It then moves on to electrical machinery and power electronics (transformers; synchronous and asynchronous generators; rectifiers and inverters) and finally focuses on the embedding of sustainable energy sources such as photovoltaic and wind-generated power into the grid (power flow calculations; stability and control; power quality; island grid, energy chains). The course is compulsory for Sustainable Energy Technology students and elective for Engineering students.
