EE2029 - Introduction to Electrical Energy Systems

Course Syllabus:

This module covers the fundamental principles of modern electrical energy systems, including three-phase analysis, electric generators, electric loads, and power electronic converters. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to analyse, model, and predict the performance of energy systems and devices including single-phase and three-phase systems, transformers, and various types of generators. Students will also learn how different components in a power system co-operate and affect each other. Past and current practices, as well as trends in the operation of modern power systems will be covered.

The module is designed specifically to help students develop a broad systems perspective and an understanding of the principal elements of electrical energy systems. Furthermore, lectured materials are relevant to PE exams. The expectation is that students completing the module will be able to handle adequately the electrical aspects of a broad range of application topics. This will serve as the foundation for higher-level topics in power engineering. Furthermore, and most important, they will be prepared to work effectively with electrical engineers on joint solutions to complex problems.

EE5702 - Advanced Power Systems Analysis

This module covers the advanced topics of modern power systems, including synchrophasor/phasor measurement unit, three-phase power flow analysis, linear state estimation, synchronous machine dynamics, excitation system, governor system, and inverter-based microgrid. Students are expected to be able analyse the stability of unbalanced power systems -- the norm of modern grids. Furthermore, upon completion of this module, they are capable to design effective control solutions for conventional and renewable generators in tackling stability challenges in modern power systems. 

The primary objective of this module is to equip students with the state-of-art knowledge (theoretical and practical) such that they can address real-world power engineering problems and meet the design specifications mandated by the industry standards. This module contributes towards the credits required to become a Professional Engineer in Singapore. 

Synthetic Biology - iGEM Competition

Synthetic biology is an interdisciplinary branch of biology and engineering. The aim is to systematically engineer genetic circuits to manipulate life, programming organisms to perform any desired task. Research demands contemporary gene synthesis technology and advanced biotechnological techniques to build living systems—often by using skills attained by training in many fields.

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is a worldwide synthetic biology competition involving high school students, undergraduate students, and graduate researchers. PEng Lab has been supervising and training undergraduate students to compete at iGEM since 2017. Outcomes of our undergraduate students can be viewed at the following links: 20212019, 2018, and 2017. In particular, our team won Best Manufacturing Project, Best New Part Collection, and Best Wiki in 2021. We also came Second in the Undergraduate Grand Prize.
