Aims

To provide students with an understanding of how electrical and electronic systems are used in the marine environment. The students will be introduced to electrical machines and to power electronic systems and will develop an understanding of how electrical equipment can be integrated to form a reliable and safe distribution system within the marine environment.

Outline Of Syllabus

The lecture material will cover:

  • The need for marine electrical engineering systems
  • Electrical machines in the marine environment
  • Power electronic systems
  • Power system distribution and its protection
  • Sensing, actuating and control systems
  • Power system design: Opportunities and constraints

The modules will include preschool reading, examples, a preschool assignment, an intensive school (five days), and a post school assignment.

Pre-school material

Normally requires 50 hours of study.

Pre-school material enables you to revise and review prerequisite material so that the intensive school can be run efficiently and effectively. The materials will be available six to eight weeks before the intensive school takes place.

You will undertake a pre-school assignment (30% of the module mark) which you will submit on the first day of the intensive school.

One week intensive school

Has an approximate contact time of 35 hours.

The intensive school includes lectures, case studies, tutorials, presentations, and discussions.

You will sit an examination (40% of the module mark) during this intensive teaching week.

Post-school material

Requires 15 hours of study.

This material consolidates the module learning.

Post-school material involves completion of a post-school assignment (30% of the module mark) which you will submit eight weeks after the intensive school.

Teaching Location: University College London Campus
