AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the theoretical and methodological skills necessary for the understanding of the most relevant problems of the components present in modern electrical systems for energy, with particular reference to the integration of renewable sources

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

Describe the operation of the main electrical devices
Describe a real object with a circuit model
Predict the behavior of the device starting from the circuit model that has been proposed by exploiting the theory of electrical circuits
Present an argument by defining its logical flow, starting from the hypotheses to the final results, respecting the criteria of formal correctness
Analyze realistic problems or test cases using the theoretical knowledge imparted in class

 

As for soft skills, students will have strengthened their ability to communicate effectively in written and oral form, developing critical thinking.

Stress management, the ability to concentrate, critical reflection with respect to a task and autonomy in decisions will be developed and trained.

The course activities will help students in managing their social interactions, in constructive communication, in the ability to respect others and their needs by providing their assessments but overcoming prejudices.

Finally, attention will be paid to increasing awareness of one's own learning strategies.

 

TEACHING METHODS

The training objectives will be pursued in two ways (besides classical lessons):

1) The students will be divided into groups, each of which will be assigned a test case that the group will present to the rest of the class. Furthermore, with the consent of the class, a method of feedback to each group created by the listeners will be defined. To make the feedback "objective" a "section" will be collectively defined containing the items on which the feedback will focus.

2) It is proposed to combine the frontal lessons with a significant "experiential" part in which, through the use of a general purpose software (i.e. Matlab), the students will be able to apply firsthand what they have learned during the theoretical explanations.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Overview on electromagnetic fields.

The main electrical machines: Transformers, induction machines, synchronous machines

Principles of static conversion in electrical energy

Prodcution of energy from photovoltaic plants

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam will consist of a written exercise followed by an oral discussion

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The assessment of the achievement of the training objectives will be proposed as follows:
1) The ability to present a topic will be assessed through a general question, in which students, in the face of a limited time, will have to choose what to expose and what to skip, in what order to present the concepts and at what level of detail
2) the ability to analyze a real problem and translate it into mathematical models will be tested by proposing a real case study not addressed during the lessons in which the student will have to interact with the examining teacher to arrive at the solution of the problem

FURTHER INFORMATION

Pre-requisites :

There are no formal prerequisites, but a good basic knowledge of electric circuits is strongly recommended.

 

Students who have valid certification of physical or learning disabilities on file with the University and who wish to discuss possible accommodations or other circumstances regarding lectures, coursework and exams, should speak both with the instructor and with Professor Federico Scarpa (federico.scarpa@unige.it ), the School's disability liaison.
