Minor in Finnish: Sähköenergiatekniikka

Code: ELEC3027

Responsible professors: Marko Hinkkanen, Matti Lehtonen

Extent: 20 credits

Language: English

Prerequisites: Minor in Electrical Engineering in the Bachelor’s degree or equivalent knowledge.

Objectives and learning outcomes

Electrical power and energy systems form the backbone of societies. Intelligent systems, spanning from production to end-user, ensure optimal utilisation of resources — minimal impact on environment, maximal benefits for society. The field includes transmission, distribution, smart grid, and sustainable generation and utilisation of electrical power, as well as power-conversion devices such as motors, generators, and power-electronic converters. This minor offers a theoretical base needed by engineers working on the field of electrical power and energy engineering.

Upon completion of the Minor, the student will be able to:

-     Identify fundamental aspects and considerations for electrical energy systems

-     Analyze and evaluate existing and future challenges in the field of electrical power and energy engineering

-     Analyze power systems and energy conversion devices
