Leerresultaten

Algemene competenties

Having in-depth knowledge and understanding of exact sciences with the specificity of their application to engineering

The course is specialized. The students must acquire knowledge and understanding about electric and power electronic systems used for driving electric rail vehicles.

Attitudes

Having an attitude of life-long learning as needed for the future development of his/her career

At the exam, the students must be able by self-learning to acquire knowledge about the structure, the operation and the characteristics of other traction systems than those analyzed during the course.

Knowledge oriented competences

Having in-depth knowledge and understanding of the advanced methods and theories to schematize and model complex problems or processes

The students must acquire knowledge and understanding specifically of the Matlab Simulink software for the purpose of modelling electric traction systems.

Knowledge oriented competences

Additional knowledge oriented competence for major Energy

Having a broad scientific knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to design, produce and maintain complex mechanical, electrical and/or energy systems with a focus on products, systems and services

The students must develop these aspects specifically for electric traction systems.

Knowledge oriented competences

Additional knowledge oriented competence for major Energy

Having an in depth scientific knowledge, understanding and skills in at least one of the subfields needed to design, produce, apply and maintain complex mechanical, electrical and/or energy systems

The subfield considered here is electric traction which is typically related to high energy handling.

Scientific competences

Can reformulate complex engineering problems in order to solve them (simplifying assumptions, reducing complexity)

The students are trained for this objective by analyzing the documents related to an existing traction system and by means of simulation to evaluate its performances.

Scientific competences

Can present and defend results in a scientifically sound way, using comtemporary communication tools, for a national as well as for an international professional or lay audience

At the level of the exam the students must make a case study that they have to defend in an oral interview.

Scientific competences

Can collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team

At the level of the exam, the students must make a case study in team.

Attitudes

Having a critical attitude towards one's own results and those of others

At the level of the exam, the students must make a case study in team. Each student is evaluated individually on all aspects of the case. This sharps their critical attitude towards results of each other.

Attitudes

Having the flexibility and adaptability to work in an international and/or intercultural context

At the level of the exam, students are requested to use the BRUFACE opportunity to make international teams.

Beoordelingsinformatie

De beoordeling bestaat uit volgende opdrachtcategorieën:
Examen Mondeling bepaalt 100% van het eindcijfer

Binnen de categorie Examen Mondeling dient men volgende opdrachten af te werken:

  • Examen met een wegingsfactor 1 en aldus 100% van het totale eindcijfer.

Aanvullende info mbt evaluatie

First session : Oral examination

Second session : idem

A problem in the field of electric traction is submitted as a case study. The students are offered large preparation time and opportunity to consult any information source. The results of the preparation have to be presented in an interview for the purpose of the evaluation. The skills to model and simulate an electric traction system are evaluated in particular.
