Description

As a student of the programme in Power Electronics and Drives, you will study efficient and intelligent energy conversion employing power electronic technology and electrical machines. The objectives of the Power Electronics and Drives MSc syllabus are to provide you with:
  • Detailed understanding of the operation, function and interaction between various components and sub-systems used in power electronic converters, electric machines and adjustable-speed drives
  • Knowledge enabling design, modelling, simulation and synthesis of power converter-based systems used for conversion of electric energy
  • Experience in design of controllers for PED systems using classical and modern control theory
  • Experience in the practical implementation of controllers using for example digital signal processors
  • To enable you to develop, construct, operate and test power electronic converters and drives in the laboratory
The Master's programme combines state-of-the-art technologies with conventional technologies, for example power semiconductor devices, electronics, electro-magnetics, digital signal processors, control theory, EMC and energy technology. The themes for the study in Power Electronics and Drives provide you with in-depth understanding of the technologies and scientific disciplines involved in electric energy conversion by means of power electronic converters and electric machines.

Experimental work plays a key role in the syllabus. A large, well-equipped laboratory is available, offering you excellent opportunities for constructing and testing prototypes of electronic systems and electric machines. Facilities for testing power electronic components, converters and high power systems are also at your disposal.

Career Opportunities  

The gained knowledge enables the MSc graduates to work in project engineering, research, development and management in Danish and international industries or public institutions. 
Examples of possible employers are:
  • Wind energy for converter and generator design such as Vestas
  • Electrical drives such as Danfoss and Grundfos
  • High power converters for compensation or active filters or for machine design such as ABB and Siemens
  • Control of converters such as KK-electronics
  • PV-systems such as Danfoss Solar Inverters
  • Particle accelerators such as Danfysik
  • Switch mode converters such as Bang & Olufsen
  • Novel lighting such as Martin Professional
