Flexible Energy Technology


  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

During this programme you study the operational flexibility of advanced combined cycle power plants and new energy network technologies that will allow us to balance the energy network in the future.

The programme consists of two terms: Flexible Power Generation and Energy Transition.

In the first term, you will follow either an electrical or a mechanical engineering programme. In each programme you will perform a project concerning Flexible Power Generation that is relevant for the power plant industry. The necessary knowledge will be given during courses that support the project, such as Power plant operation, Power plant design, Power grids and power electronics. These courses are mainly given by experts from the power plant industry (Electrabel, Nuon).

In the second term you follow a joined electrical and mechanical engineering programme during which you perform a project concerning the Energy Transition. For this project, you participate in applied research projects of the Centre for Applied Research and Innovation in Energy (CARI-E). This centre performs research in order to study the balancing of the energy network. Relevant courses for the projects, such as renewable energy, energy network and network control, are given by researchers from CARI-E.
