Digital Realization of the Laboratory on Electrical Power Engineering

11/01/2021

The course "Laboratory on Electrical Power Engineering" has been held completely digitally since the beginning of January. For this, the participating institutes have developed methods in a very short time to be able to convey the practical knowledge in the virtual space as well.

At the beginning of the semester, the Laboratory on Electrical Power Engineering could still take place under strict hygiene rules in the laboratories. However, with the increasing spread of Covid-19, the event had to be digitized in order to be able to continue the ongoing practical course. To this end, the participating institutes have developed various methods to convey the content to the students via videoconferencing. By creating simulation models, it is possible to simulate the behavior of the test rig components. In addition, video recordings of experiments are used to explain the practical experience. The rapid digitization thus makes it possible to continue practical training.
