The first objective is to provide the knowledge to understand how the energy production is controlled based on electromechanical generators (dams, wind or tidal power, etc.).
The second objective is to accompany students on thermal machines in the same manner.




Courses and tutorials

  • Modeling electromechanical generators for control: synchronous machines and induction machines.
  • Control of electric generators in isolated of classic grids, and notions of stability
  • Control systems of energy production with electric generators at fixed speed or variable speed: hydroelectric production, tidal power, wind generation, etc.

_Experiment (computer simulations)_
Wind power systems and services, reactive power compensation generation, fuel cells, photovoltaic generation, storage through electric vehicle and filter in energy conversion.
Thermal machines


Basic knowledge of the operation of power systems.
Knowledge of electrical machines: synchronous machine, rotating magnetic fields, induction machine (desirable but not essential)
Fluids mecanics basics.


Session normale / First session
Evaluation non rattrapable (EN) / EN assessment : TP et présentations notés / Lab reports and presentations
Evaluation rattrapable (ER) / ER assessment : examen écrit de 2h regroupant la totalité des notions vues en cours / 2h written exam on the whole program

Session de rattrapage / Second session
La note obtenue remplace la note de ER. Le EN n'est pas rattrapable. / The new mark will replace the first ER mark. The EN assessment cannot be retaken.
