TET4920 - Electric Power Systems, Master's Thesis


Course content

The research topic will be a problem related to wind energy in the field of electric power engineering. The course content varies depending on the selected research problem.

Learning outcome

Knowledge: • Extensive knowledge of theory, methods, techniques and tools relevant to address the research problem. Skills: • Develop independent research skills. • Conduct a comprehensive literature review/survey. • Formulate and address a precise research problem. • Collect and analyse data from literature/experiments/other relevant sources. • Document theoretical comprehension of the methods and techniques employed to address the research problem. • Critically analyse, reflect upon, and justify the obtained results. • Assimilate previous domain knowledge with knowledge gained from the literature study and the results of own investigations. • Develop effective technical report writing skills. General competence: • Communicate the research problem and its results with specialists as well as the general public. • Develop applied project management skills, i.e., define and execute a project plan with milestones, intermediate deliverables, status reports, etc. • Build scientific temperament in the acquisition of knowledge through research work. • Obtain awareness of integrity and ethics in research work.

Learning methods and activities

Independent/collaborative project work with guidance. Regular meetings with supervisor(s). There will one superviser from each insitution, TU Delft and NTNU. After submitting the thesis, the student will give an oral defense of the thesis according to TU Delft requirements.

Further on evaluation

Assessment is based on the submitted thesis and the oral defense. The grade is decided by both institutions together. Before submitting the thesis, the student must obtain clearance confirming that both TU Delft and NTNU accept the thesis for submission.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Wind Energy (MSWIND)

Course materials

Detailed guidelines for successful completion of Master’s thesis will be provided at the start of the semester, along with literature within relevant topics.
