Course frequency: Annually
First time: Study year 2012-2013
Course contents:
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.
Learning outcome:

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.
Learning activities:
Laboratory work is central to the course. You will study and elaborate several important and basic processes in energy conversion.
Teaching support:
Laboratory engineer. Mentoring meetings with course teachers.
Laboratory reports, selected articles etc. Details will be given at the start of the course.

Mandatory activity:
All laboratory work is compulsory.

The execution of and reports on all laboratory tasks must be approved.

All reports are sent to sensor. Sensor selects one report from each group.

At the day of exam, each group presents the selected report in the plenum session.

Nominal workload:
300 hours
Entrance requirements:
Special requirements in Science
Type of course:
Preparation, theory preperations, laboratory work, data analysis and report writing.

This course comprises laboratory and project tasks for topics covered in FYS373, FYS374 and FYS376 and should be taken in conjunction with these courses.

The course is given only if at least five students have signed up.

The examiner will evaluate the course and assess some of the the final reports.
