Certificate / Diploma Short course Groningen

Course description

Qualification Certificate
Field of study Engineering
Course summary Be the technical expert in modern power electronics and renewables!
Course description The transition from traditional power generation to renewable energy sources requires an increase in the operational flexibility of the network. Renewable energy sources, such as wind or photovoltaic are either cyclical, or they have a fluctuating power level. In order to guarantee a sufficient and reliable energy supply, the energy supply needs to be matched to the energy demands at all times for the integrated gas, heat and electricity networks. Energy sources are combined and changing from large centralized sources to local integrated sources with, or without, storage facilities. As a result, the requirements with respect to the operational flexibility of traditional power generators become more demanding. In addition, new energy network concepts, either AC or DC for transmission, conversion and storage need to be further developed. In this minor all aspects of generation, transport, distribution and control of electrical networks for modern grids, either Low Voltage or High Voltage, are studied. However the emphasis is on electrical aspects. Only students in Electrical Engineering can apply.
Study subjects The programme consists of four courses: Power System Design, Power System Components, Renewable Energy and Power Conversion & Power Quality. The first two courses put emphasis on "classic" electrical grids, power generation and calculation methods, while the other two are giving in depth knowledge about renewable systems and the power quality aspects that come with modern electrical grids. With guest lectures, excursions, theoretical and practical assignments you will get in depth knowledge of

In short, the following rules apply:

  • The “EU/EEA rate” is the regular fee for students from within the EU/EEA.
  • The “non-EU/EEA rate” is the rate for students from outside the EU/EEA.
  • The “institutional rate” is for all students who have already obtained a bachelor’s or master’s degree and who want to start a second programme leading to a degree at the same level or at a lower level.
  • Note that FT, PT and D stand for "full-time", "part-time" and "dual", respectively.

Make sure you contact your institution to find out what rate applies to you. The rates listed here are estimates.
