Module number: EI8016
Duration: 1 semester
Recurrence: winter and summer semester
Number of ECTS: 5
Professor in charge: Hans-Georg Herzog
Class attendance: 30
Private study: 120
The module exam consists of:
- Written report on the results as term paper (40%)
- Regular discussion with the assigned tutor (research assistant) about the work progress and concept (40%)
- A presentation of 10 minutes of the results and a colloquium of 10 minutes afterwards (20%)
Varying primary subject matters on
- numerical simulation of electrical machines and power electronics
- full vehicle simulation of hybrid-electric and battery-electric vehicles,
- energy and power management in future on-board power systems,
- driven train design and general aspects of electrical actuators.
Participants independently develop relevant scientific articles, prepare a written report and present their results. Their topics are discussed intensivley.
- By taking part in the module courses, students acquire knowledge of numerical simulation and of fields of application of power engineering simulations.
- At the end of the module, students are able to approach tasks independently in a current topical area in energy conversion technology in a scientific manner and to prepare written reports.
- Moreover, students are able to present their acquired knowledge to an expert audience.
Basic knowledge of electrical actuators
The following media are used:
- Each participant prepares an individual technical task which is mainly carried out by each student independently.
- Depending on their individual topic, participants are assigned to an individual tutor.
- The tutors assist students - especially in the beginning - by introducing the topic to them, providing appropriate literature and helpful hints regarding the technical task, the written report, and the oral presentation.
