This course is to develop a broad understanding about the basic concepts in electrical engineering and power systems with emphasis on electrical systems used in conjunction with renewable power generation techniques.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
|Campus||Old Aberdeen||Sustained Study||No|
This course begins with basic concepts in electrical engineering such as voltage, current, circuit elements, waveforms, frequency, complex notation and phasor diagrams. This is followed by study of vital equipment such as transformers, generators, and power converters. As a case study, application of this knowledge to wind farms, from turbines to grid connection will be considered.
For student studying for the MSc Renewable Energy Engineering and MSc Offshore Engineering.
