Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

The course is only open to students admitted to MPEPO. The student should have passed a basic course in electric power engineering and one or two power engineering courses appropriate for the assigned project.

Aim

The course intends to train creativity and cooperation in treating a practical problem in the field of electric power engineering, often connected to environmental technology. This shall be done by applying knowledge from earlier courses and by seeking additional information needed for the problem in question. The course shall give possibilities to solve problems where creativity is important. Teamwork and collaboration in groups with different compositions are important in the course as well as presentation of the result, both in written and oral form.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

1. Work in teams and collaborate in groups with different compositions to solve practical problems in the field of electric power engineering, often connected to environmental technology
2. Make sustainable choices of solutions and justifications due to relevant criteria's of the problems and opportunities associated with the use of different electric power components and systems
3. Identify, select and use different tools for analysis of the problem
4. Elaborate a technical report in which the chosen solution is motivated
5. Present and defend the chosen project solution for an audience ranging from management to engineering colleagues

Content

The projects are not fixed and may vary from year to year. A list of suitable projects will be presented before the beginning of the course on the course homepage. The different projects have different aims. The project could consist of experiments, design, construction and testing of prototypes and usage of computers for computation (design & construction) and simulation (experiments & testing). During the whole project minutes shall be kept of the continuing work. A report shall be written and finally the result shall be presented orally at a seminar.

Organisation

The course is basically run in project form with different supervisors in different projects. The students may in consultation with the supervisor use the capacity (both staff and equipment) of the division. Cooperation with trade and industry may also occur. The project groups meet with their supervisors about 4 hours/week. The rest of the time is self-governed work. In some projects study visits will also be included.

Literature

The course literature will be decided by the supervisors of the separate projects.

Examination

Written report and oral presentation. Grading: UG - Fail, pass. To be approved in the course active participation (high attendance) in the project work and a satisfactory presentation of the result are required.
