The Electric Power Systems track allows the master students to get the technical knowledge about components and systems required for renewable energy integration within the power system.
The Electric Power Systems graduate
- has a fundamental knowledge about the physical components of power systems, power electronics, new designs of HVDC systems and control theory,
- has the technical knowledge about components and systems required for renewable energy integration within the power system,
- demonstrates competences of modelling and analysis of composite systems both from a steady state and a dynamic point of view,
- masters the design of electrical power systems and its components with special attention on reliability, protection as well as operation and maintenance in offshore applications.
The track will allow students to get a combination of the standard power system analysis skill and a specialization within electric power systems for offshore application. Flexibility will then be given to a specialization within the fields of electric power systems for offshore wind farms, off-shore grids or technical and economic integration aspects of intermittent generation.
List of Courses (curriculum 2014-2016)
The student is expected to take the mandatory courses and complete the list of courses with electives of his/her choice to reach a minimum of 30 ECTS per semester. The below mentioned electives are merely recommended, certainly not the only option! Students are invited to go through the universities course-bases and ask for permission to join any elective of their choice. The complete course list has to be approved by the track coordinators of both degree awarding universities.
1st Semester – 30 ECTS courses @DTU

|46300||Wind Turbine Technology and Aerodynamics||10|
|31786||Wind Turbine Electrical Design||10|
|31730||Electric power engineering, fundamentals||10|
|46230||Power System Balancing with Large Scale Wind Power||5|
|*Students can choose any Wind Energy related course or a course on general competences at DTU. Note that the choice has to be approved by the track coordinators. In case of only taking 46230, students can also decide to take the remaining 5 ECTS later (i.e. at TU Delft or NTNU) in the programme.|
2nd Semester – 30 ECTS courses, incl. possible internship @TU Delft
The 2nd semester at the TU Delft is divided in two quarters. Click here to find information about the courses at the TU Delft.

|**Students can choose do to an internship at industry and obtain ECTS for it. The faculty of Electrical Engineering at TU Delft offers an internship of 9 to 15 ECTS, depending on the time the students will stay at a company. EWEM students are allowed to use only 6 ECTS of the total amount of credits in their study programme. The remaining ECTS will be extra-curricular, i.e. the student will end up with >120 ECTS (for example, if the student takes an internship of 12 ECTS, the student will end up with 126 ECTS after completing the EWEM programme).|
3rd Semester – 15 ECTS courses + 15 ECTS thesis/specialization project @NTNU
Click here tto find information about the courses at NTNU.
|TET5505||Electric Power Engineering, Specialization Course||7.5|
|TET5500||Electric Power Engineering, Specialization Project***||15|
|TET4160||Insulating Materials for High Voltage Applications||7.5|
|TET4190||Power Electronics for Renewable Energy||7.5|
|TET5100||Power Engineering Updates||7.5|
|TET4115||Power System Analysis||7.5|
|*** The specialisation project is part of the thesis work, see comment under semester four|
4th Semester – 30 ECTS thesis (free mobility)****
|Compulsory TU Delft|
|TET4910||Electric Power Engineering, Master Thesis||30|
|**** The master thesis is supervised by the two diploma awarding universities and it is worth 45 ECTS. At NTNU the thesis work is split in two parts: 15 ECTS project (TET5500 – Electric Power Engineering, Specialization Project during semester 3) + 30 ECTS thesis (TET4910 – Electric Power Engineering, Master Thesis, semester 4) = 45 ECTS in total. TU Delft counts thesis work in its whole for 45 ECTS.|
