About the course
Starts Oct. 7
In this half-day course, the need for electricity is put into perspective, from a societal and political point of view. Then, a basic technical lecture is explained the fundamental principles of electricity and how it is generated. This forms the basis for the interactive case on power generation and a final in-depth lecture on offshore power networks for wind farms. The latter also discusses several technical, and economical trade-offs to be made during the concept design of such networks.
Interactive online lectures and discussions are provided that focus on theory, industry practice and lessons learned from field experts. These lectures are accompanied by a hands-on case in which knowledge gained from the lectures is immediately put into practice.
