Content and structure of the minor
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
The minor consists of 20 credits in total. Students may either choose to complete four compulsory courses of their choice or three compulsory courses and one elective course as given in the list below.
