Course Contents
The course consists out of two parts: electricity supply and sustainable energy. In the first part students will be introduced with three-phase power systems and the most important components that make part of the power systems. Students will also learn the important issues that should be considered in order power systems to operate in reliable and safe way. Attention will be paid to the most common system disturbances that may occur, and the associated phenomena which result from these disturbances. By attending this course, students will obtain basic knowledge that is needed to follow the specialisation courses: Power System Analysis II, Power System Transients and Power System Stability that are given in the master programme. In the scope of this course, also a few instruction hours are reserved.
In the second part students will learn how to estimate and calculate the potential of (renewable) energy sources in reference to human kinds energy consumption using the physical principles of energy generation and consumption. After completion of the course the student is able to design a sustainable energy infrastructure based on realistic calculations and conditions. In addition the student establish an understanding of the basic underlying electric engineering principles in - e-mobility, - solar energy, - wind energy and - smart grids/ DC grids.


Study Goals
- To learn how a power system works
- to obtain basic knowledge how to model a power system with the associated components
- to learn how a power system behaves during small and large disturbances
- to obtain knowledge and techniques for solving power system problems (load flow, computation of short circuit fault currents)
- To provide simple physical tools to make simple estimations/calculations of the potential of (renewable) energy sources in reference to human kinds energy consumption
- Understanding and apply the physics of energy generation and consumption.
- Calculate the energy generation and consumption
- Design of a sustainable energy infrastructure based on realistic calculations.
- Understanding of the wide variety electrical engineering principles in various examples of sustainable energy technologies. Establish an understanding of the basic underlying electric principles in - e-mobility, - solar energy, - wind energy and - smart grids/ DC grids.
Education Method
Lecture/instruction material will be in advance provided on the blackboard. Excercises will be solved during the instruciton hourse and will be provided on the blackboard afterwards.

Assessment
The examination for this course will be conducted in two parts.
Judgement
The examination for this course will be conducted in two parts. The final score is the average of the two-part exam results. Hereby the calculation is done with one decimal place, and the final grade rounded to half. The re-examination is conducted in one part (all material). The result of the partial exams expires prior to resit and is not transferable to the next academic year.
