2. Pre-Requisites

To fulfill the learning objectives of this course, students should have the following knowledge and skills:

- Knowledge of the basic concepts of numerical calculus and its application to engineering topics.

- Knowledge of computer programming techniques and usage of software with application to engineering topics.

- Knowledge of fundamental concepts on electric energy systems: electric power generation, transmission, sub-transmission, and distribution networks, as well as types of electrical lines and conductors.

- Knowledge of control systems.

 

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

Facilities related to the production, transmission, distribution, and consumption of electric energy conform what are call Electric Energy Systems also known as Power Systems. Electric energy is currently the main energy vector connecting primary energies to end-use energies. Therefore, the knowledge of the configuration, operation, and management of power systems must be a part of the academic training of every graduate in Mining and Energy Engineering specializing in Energy and Fuels.

Along with the courses on Energy Engineering and Renewable Energies Engineering, this course completes the academic training on Energy Technology offered in this degree.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Progress Tests 50.00% 50.00% Understanding of concepts and procedures will be assessed by means of writing tests.
Assessment of activities done in the computer labs 25.00% 25.00% Both, attendance and performance in lab sessions, as well as the development of the corresponding report will be assessed.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 25.00% 25.00% Submitted materials and, in this case, their defense/presentation will be assessed
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The grading of all graded tasks will consist in a numerical value between 0 and 10. The student must have a final grade greater or equal to 5.0 to pass the course. The final grade will be obtained according to the following assessment system:
    - Arithmetic mean of the grades obtained in the progress tests. The grade obtained in each progress test must be greater or equal to 5.0. The resulting mean will represent 50% of the final grade of the course. There will be an opportunity to retake the progress tests with grades lower than 5.0 by means of a writing test that will take place the day assigned to the regular term exam of the course.
    - Grade obtained in lab activities. This grade will represent 25% of the final grade of the course. Students who want to improve their grades in these activities will have the opportunity by means of a writing test that will take place the day assigned to the regular term exam of the course.
    - Grade obtained in the assignment. This grade will represent 25% of the final grade of the course. Students who want to improve their grades in this activity will have the opportunity by means of a writing test that will take place the day assigned to the regular term exam of the course.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Evaluation criteria not defined

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The resit exam will consist in a single writing test by means of which the student will have the opportunity to retake all graded activities of the course. The grading of this exam will consists in a numerical value between 0 and 10. A grade greater or equal to 5.0 must be obtained to pass the course.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
The second resit exam will consist in a single writing test by means of which the student will have the opportunity to retake all graded activities of the course. The grading of this exam will consists in a numerical value between 0 and 10. A grade greater or equal to 5.0 must be obtained to pass the course.
