About this course

Perform practical laboratory projects and simulations where you for each project: 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 experience with project management.
  • 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.
  • FYS103, FYS272, FYS230, FYS253, FYS254
  • 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.

  • The examiner will evaluate the course and assess some of the the final reports.
  • All laboratory work is compulsory.
  • 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.

  • Lectures: 36 hrs

    Laboratory exercises: 84 hrs
