Electric Power Systems


The Electric Power Systems track provides the students with technical knowledge about the components and systems necessary for the integration of renewable energy within the power system.

Profile of the Electric Power Systems graduate:

  • Fundamental knowledge of the physical components of power systems and electronics as well as of new designs of HVDC systems and control theory
  • Technical knowledge of the components and systems required for renewable energy integration within the power system
  • Competences in modelling and analysis of composite systems with respect to both their steady state and dynamics
  • Mastery of electrical power systems design and its components with special attention on reliability, protection as well as operation and maintenance in offshore applications.

This track gives the student a combination of standard power system analysis skills and of more specific ones related to the electric power systems used in offshore applications. Within the field of electric power systems the student can further chose to follow different profiles, namely electric power systems for offshore wind farms, off-shore grids or technical and economic integration aspects of intermittent generation.


The Electric Power Systems student is required to accomplish a minimum of 30 ECTS per semester/university by taking mandatory as well as elective courses. Students need to get the approval of their complete course list by the track coordinators of both universities awarding the degree. An overview of the courses offered within the Electric Power Systems track is provided below.

Note: the listed electives courses are the only courses that are pre-approved by the track coordinators. Should students want to follow elective courses that are not already included in this list, they should request their track coordinators to review and approve the courses before enrolling for such courses.

**Students can choose do to an internship at industry and obtain ECTS for it. The faculty of Electrical Engineering at TU Delft  offers an internship of 9 to 15 ECTS, depending on the time the students will stay at a company. EWEM students are allowed to use only 6 ECTS of the total amount of credits in their study programme. The remaining ECTS will be extra-curricular, i.e. the student will end up with >120 ECTS (for example, if the student takes  an internship of 12 ECTS, the student will end up with 126 ECTS after completing the EWEM programme).
