After attending the module the students are able: * to familiarize themselves independently with specified topics in the field of electrical drive systems and power electronics in industry and/or research * to write a technical report on their work and * to present and discuss their work in the framework of a technical seminar with professional audience


Seminar Power Electronics and Electrical Drives ***************************************************** The seminar offers the opportunity to become acquainted with recent topics of electrical drive systems and power electronics in research and industry. The topics are related to but not restricted to current research at the institute, e.g. - sensorless control of electrical drives - modern strategies in drive control - „Hardware-in-the-Loop“ systems and - renewable energy systems During the seminar dates the participatents are trained to improve their presentation and discussion skills and, during an individual work phase on their specified topic, they are supervised by a tutor in preparing a technical report and presentation. Finally, the students present their results and answer questions in the subsequent discussions.

Teaching and learning methods

Each participant works on an individual technical and/or scientific problem. This is mainly carried out by each student independently. Depending on their individual topic, participants are assigned to an individual tutor. The tutors assist students - in particular in the beginning - by introducing the topic, providing appropriate literature and helpful hints regarding the problem and its solution, the written report, and the oral presentation.
