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)|
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.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1st attempt: Three
hour written examination (80%); Continuous
Resit: The re-sit will comprise of re-doing the failed element/s (exam and/or coursework assessment/s) from the 1st attempt with a maximum CGS mark of D3. The marks for other elements (successfully passed) will be carried over. Resit mark of either RP or RF will be recorded.
