Behörighet:

För kurser inom Chalmers utbildningsprogram gäller samma behörighetskrav som till de(t) program kursen ingår i.

Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Basic knowledge in electrical drives, power systems and use of Matlab on Bachelor level. Recommended course at Chalmers is EEK140 (Elteknik).

Syfte

The course aims to provide the students with advanced and state-of-the-art developments in wind power, photo voltages, wave power and hybrid electric vehicles, dwelling both on the theoretical fundaments as well as building a good practical and experimental basis. The goal of the course is also to give the students a deep knowledge about the modelling, design and control of the electric system for hydro, wind, wave, and solar power. The electric system in electric or hybrid-electric vehicles will also be treated. The understanding of the grid interaction of these power sources and consumables is also an important goal.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

With respect to Knowledge and understanding, graduated students will be able to:

1. describe the technical characteristics and performance of electric power generation by wind turbines, photovoltaic and wave power
2. describe the technical characteristics and performance of electric hybrid vehicles

With respect to Skills and abilities, graduated students will be able to:

3. identify, formulate and analyze complex problems in electric power generation and electric power use in hybrid vehicles
4. make choices of solutions and justifications due to relevant criteria's of the problems and opportunities associated with the use of hybrid electrical vehicles and power production with renewable power production
5. predict and evaluate through modelling and simulations, sustainable power production and transportation, also with limited or incomplete information
6. identify, select and use different tools for analysis of electric and vehicle modelling
7. make choices of solutions and justifications for sustainable power production
8. make choices of solutions and justifications for sustainable transportation of persons and goods
9. plan and physically arrange a test set-up in a safe way as well as minimize and assess risks with respect to personal safety and integrity of measuring circuits and instruments
10. evaluate performed tests, make necessary corrections due to external influences (e.g. atmospheric conditions) and estimate confidence in obtained results
11. have knowledge and understanding of how to apply safe working procedures in laboratories with dangerous voltages and currents
12. take part in the national and international discussion on various subjects in sustainable power production and transportation by reading, presenting and discussing international reports and journal papers

With respect to Formulation of judgements and professional attitudes with integrity, graduated students will be able to:

13. formulate judgements that include reflecting on scientific, societal and ethical responsibilities and to achieve awareness of ethical aspects on research and development work
14. get insight into the possibilities and limitations of technology, its role in society and the responsibility of humans for its use, including, social, economic as well as environmental and occupational health aspects
15. work in teams and collaborate in groups with different compositions
16. continue studies in a largely self-directed and autonomous manner, and contribute to research and development

Innehåll

The electrical energy demand is increasing worldwide. The production of electric power has to be environmental friendly to have a sustainable development; also the transportation has to go in the same direction. The course contents the technical characteristics and performance of electric power generation by wind turbines, photovoltaic cells and wave power. The course gives the students a deep knowledge about the modelling, design and control of the electric system for hydro, wind, wave, and solar power. The all over function and especially the electric system in electric and hybrid-electric vehicles will also be treated. The understanding of the grid interaction of theses power sources and consumables is also a part of the course.

Laboratory assignment (compulsory):
Test and evaluation of electrical system for a wind turbine, a practical 4-hour lab.
Test and evaluation of a solar photovoltaic cell, a practical 4-hour lab.

Project (compulsory):
Two compulsory project work are to be performed. They deal with the design of the energy flow in a hybrid vehicle and the power performance of a wind turbine.

Organisation

The course comprises lectures, computer assignments and class meetings devoted to resolving possible problems in the course projects. The assignments and project task are to be solved outside the class and are to be reported before corresponding deadlines. There will also be two experimental exercises, one with the electrical system of a wind turbine and another with a photovoltaic system.

Litteratur

See course hompage.

Examination

Written examination. Grades: Fail, 3, 4 or 5. Approved assignments.
