Perform practical laboratory projects where you for each procjet: study the theory for the process, go through the specific lab, prepare running the lab, do the lab work, analyze the results, and write a report.
All energy must be converted from its source form (sun, biomass, wind, elevated water) into a useful form (light, movement, comfort). After the course, you will: Understand some important energy conversion processes. Have been running three real energy converters. Conducted measurements on real converters. Acquired a sense of dimensions related to, power, efficiency and environmental impacts of energy conversion.
Laboratory work is central to the course. You will study and elaborate several important and basic processes in energy conversion.
Laboratory engineer. Mentoring meetings with course teachers.
Laboratory reports, selected articles etc. Details will be given at the start of the course.
All laboratory work is compulsory.
The execution of and reports on all laboratory tasks must be approved.
