Role of laboratory in the education of modern power systems
2011 (English)In: IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting, Detroit, MI, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
Power system laboratories should be developed and fully exploited to educate capable power engineers, who would be able to easily integrate with the industry workforce. There are various tools and methods of using these tools, which can be utilized in power system laboratories. Particularly, hands-on hardware-based equipment or simulation-based software packages can be used. Also, the utilization of laboratories depends on the teaching-learning methodology. These methods may be classified as conventional lecture-based, project-based learning (PBL), and hybrid conventional-PBL mode of delivery of a unit of study. This paper discusses the role of a power system laboratory in each of these delivery modes and also discusses the assessment methods of the laboratory practice in each mode.
