Module Responsibility:

Prof. Christopher Friedrich Wirz

Admission Requirements:

None

Educational Objectives:

Professional Competence

Theoretical Knowledge

The students are able to

  • name the operating behaviour of consumers,
  • describe special requirements on the design of supply networks and to the electrical equipment in isolated networks, as e.g. onboard ships, offshore units, factories and emergency power supply systems,
  • explain power generation and distribution in isolated grids, wave generator systems on ships,
  • name requirements for network protection, selectivity and operational monitoring,
  • name the requirements regarding marine equipment and apply to product development, as well as
  • describe operating procedures of equipment components of standard and specialized ships and derive requirements for product development.
Capabilities

Students are able to

• calculate short-circuit currents, switchgear,

• design electrical propulsion systems for ships

• design additional machinery components, as well as

• to apply basic principles of hydraulics and to develop hydraulic systems.

Personal Competence

Social Competence

The students are able to communicate and cooperate in a professional environment in the shipbuilding and component supply industry.

Autonomy

The widespread scope of gained knowledge enables the students to handle situations in their future profession independently and confidently.
