To apply the knowledge, methods and tools got within previous programme - Energy Conversion in main application domains.
The student must be able of choosing the appropriate power converter from functional and technical requirements put by the application as well as to design the whole system.
To understand the functional and operation requirements of the most important application domains, namely the energy generation either for the grid or for the vehicle and electrical traction either in electrical vehicles or in train transportation.
To analyse the requirements for interconnecting distributed resources with electric power systems (grid codes) as well as for managing power source and mechanical transportation loads (standards).
To be capable of developing an appropriate model for a specific energy source and a mechanical traction load in order to satisfy particular analysis or synthesis requirements.
To be capable of designing and analysing a power electronics based converter system in anyone of these domains.
To be capable of designing a global control system satisfying the requirements of these domains.
To be capable of using simulation software for dynamics analysis.
To analyse fault conditions and design safe operation of power electronics systems in the both domains.
Basic knowledge in power electronics and control systems
Fundamentals of renewable energy sources: wind energy, solar/photovoltaic energy, fuel cell and biomass. Modelling of renewable energy sources for power electronics conditioning. First stage conversion: form primary energy source to electrical energy.
Fundamentals of electrical traction: electrical vehicles and trains. Modelling of mechanical loads for electrical circuits. Energy recovery. First stage conversion: form primary energy load to electrical energy.
Power electronics conditioning for the both domains: voltage and current sources. Analysis of requirements for converter design.
Control methods considering the energy source/load characteristics: algorithms for maximum power flow. Analysis of converter control methods satisfying system requirements.
Dynamical and permanent faults. Operation under abnormal conditions. Safe operation of global system. Standardization.
High performance and dynamics analysis by simulation of power electronics converters based systems using MatLab, SaberTM and PSIM software packages.
Classes will include lectures, labs (using simulation software) and oral presentations from students reporting conclusions from their oriented study and research in specific domains.

The components for student evaluation are:
Each component will receive a grading in percentage.
The final score will be calculated according to the following rule: 0.2 * Assignments + 0.4 * Projects +0.4 * Exam
