Course ET1027

Electrical Power Engineering

7.5 Credits
First Cycle

Starts week 46, 2020

The overall goal of the course is for students to gain knowledge about the principles for the components of power systems in generation, transmission and distribution as well as for students to gain skills for using numerical calculations for dimensioning and measurement methods to decide on performance of these components. The course looks at transmission grids for alternating and direct current, electrical power dimensioning and phase compensation. Engines, transformers and power electronics are important elements in the course.

After completing the course, students shall be able to:

  • explain the meaning of fundamental concepts and technical vocabulary within electrical engineering
  • explain the principles of different transformers as well as be able to dimension them
  • explain the principles and the design of motors and generators as well as dimension them
  • explain the principles, the design and the architecture of various types of power electronics to convert AC to DC and vice versa, as well as be able to perform calculations on them
  • dimension lines and transmission line systems for both three-phase alternating current and direct current
  • identify the different components of an electric power system
  • manage the electrical safety in electrical installations in the power grid
