Electric Power Systems track

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

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.

**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).

 

Profiles @ TU Delft 2nd Semester - It is suggested that EWEM-students follow one of the three profiles below in order to prepare themselves for the MSc thesis project.
