Module Number: EI7417
Duration: 1 Semester
Recurrence: Winter and Summer Semester
Number of ECTS: 6
Procedure and topics:
- Look for one or two interested project partners.
- Find a suitable topic for the project course: Topics are posted on the institute's website or can be inquired with the scientific staff of the institute.
- After consulting with the supervisor you will be registered in TUMonline for the project course.
For further information on precedure and coordination, please contact Daniel Glose.
Professor in charge: Ralph Kennel
Class attendance: 60
Private study: 120
Under supervision project takes are planned, carried out and documented in groups of 2-3 students.
Topics cover current research areas of the institute:
Encoderless control of electrical drives
Modern control strategies for electrical drives (e.g. predictive control, flatness based control, non-identifier based adaptive control, "hardware in the loop" systems)
Renewable energy systems (e.g. photovoltaics and wind energy). The main focus is on solving a practical, engineering-related task that requires teamwork and independet, structured work.
After attending the module students are able to:
design and optimize controllers for mechatronic drive systems (e.g. DC machines and AC machines in constant flux region and field weakening range, two-mass systems)
know and understand the working principle and application of power electronic actuators and/or independently perform the comissioning drive systems and to analyze and evaluate its operation.
Basic knowledge of:
Control engineering (desirable)
Electronic machines (desirable)
Programming skills in C (desirable)
It is recommended to participate in additon to following moduels:
Electrical Machines, Power Electronics, Advanced Control, Nonlinear Control.
The following teaching materials are used:
Presenations, group work, individual work, experiments (laboratory setups, measurements, etc.)
