授業計画

In order to prevent infections with the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the Education Management Committee of the University of Tokyo decided on March 17 to implement online teaching (class) throughout the university.
The online teaching in this course officially starts on Wednesday April 22 after a couple of familiarization sessions for online class in the period 4 on Wednesday April 8 and Wednesday April 15.
A couple of the classes is scheduled in a row in the period 4 and 5 of every Wednesday from April 22 to May 20. Another class for learning the nuclear power dynamics using plant simulators is scheduled in the period 4 on Wednesday, May 27, Examination will be held in the period 2 on June 1st. The link to join the familiarization sessions and classes online is provided in the bottom of the syllabus. The class schedule is as follows:
-Familiarization session 1: Period 4 on Wednesday, April 8
-Familiarization session 2: Period 4 on Wednesday, April 15
Students are requested to get familiar with online class using Zoom (online lecture software) before the following classes start officially. A couple of familiarization sessions for online class using Zoom is provided. It is highly recommended for the students to join these sessions online if possible. Contents of session 1 and 2 are same. Students can join either or both of the sessions.
-Class 1/2: Period 4/5 on Wednesday, April 22
-Class 3/4: Period 4/5 on Wednesday, April 29
-Class 5/6: Period 4/5 on Wednesday, May 6
Note that Class 5/6 will be held on May 6 (alternative class date) to compensate the reduced number of classes.
-Class 7/8: Period 4/5 on Wednesday, May 13
-Class 9/10: Period 4/5 on Wednesday, May 20
-Class 11/12: Period 4/5 on Wednesday, May 27
Note that Class 12 is for the exercise of nuclear power plant dynamics using the plant simulator software.
-Examination: Period 2 on Monday, June 1.
Classes will be back to normal (face to face) teaching when the Education Management Committee of the University of Tokyo decides to do so.
The course includes the following classes (topics).
Class 1
Orientation
Fundamentals of electrical engineering and electromagnetism
Class 2:
Fundamentals of electrical engineering and electric power transmission network
Class 3 and Class 4
Introduction of electrical equipment that includes turbine, generator, transformer, switchgear and others
Class 5 through Class 9
Introduction to power generating plants that include fossil power plant, geothermal power plant. hydro power plant, wind power plant, solar power plant, fuel cell, and nuclear power plant
The following topic will follow in the end of this series of the classes:
Sep 2018 Hokkaido blackout - How it happened and recovered.
Class 9 and Class11
The classes will focus on the introduction of ABWR (Advanced BWR Reactor). The topics encompass the features of ABWR including major plant systems, instrumentation and control systems (I&C system), I&C engineering for high reliability, plant protection interlock, and main control room and operation consoles.
Class 12
Nuclear power plant simulator:
Students will learn the basics of nuclear power plants based on nuclear power plant simulators. If possible, Student can manipulate the nuclear power plant simulators on a computer available to each student in a computer classroom in the Information Education Building.
Please note that class dates may change when the unexpected but unavoidable conflict with the instructor’s other work schedule happens. Also, the timeline of the topics over the classes may change in accordance with the progress of the lectures. When such changes happen, they will be notified in advance.

授業の方法

The teaching method of this course is basically online lecture with Q&A sessions until face to face class is allowed. The students are requested to be familiar with online class using Zoom. It is highly recommended for the students to join the familiarization sessions online if possible. The power point presentation is the primary tool of the teaching. The power point presentations for each lecture will be made available in ITC-LMS to the students before each class.
The instructor would like the students to understand not only the principles and the basics but also the outline of the actual implementations of the power generating plants, So the lecture presentation will primarily consist of figures and pictures with appropriate descriptions, avoiding too many and complex equations. However, it should be noted that the students will see basic equations of electromagnetism and electrical engineering in the introductory lectures on these topics that include trigonometric functions, differential and integral equations and complex functions. The instructor expects that the students have basic knowledge on collage level calculus and do not have much difficulties to be familiar with the equations introduced in the lectures. A few occasional quizzes will be conducted to promote students understanding.
Students are requested to submit a few page report which analyzes the situation of electric power generation and available energy resources in a country whichever a student wants to select, and discuss the energy policy which best fits the situation in that country.

成績評価方法

Grade will be determined by the score of the examination, evaluation of the report and presentation.

教科書

Due to the wide variety of the topics to be included in this course, there is no single textbook that covers all the topics throughout the course. The instructor does not feel it comfortable to list several books as textbook because it may not be costly. Instead, the instructor would rather like to use and treat his lecture presentations as the primary teaching material. The lecture presentation will be made available on line at ITC-LMS in advance before each class.

参考書

The students will find that the following books and reports are helpful for learning and understanding.
(1) Steven W, Blume, Electric Power System Basics for the Nonelectrical Professional, Second edition (2016), IEEE Press Series on Power Engineering, A John Wiley & Sons, Inc., ISBN 978-1-119-18019-7
This is a good book for basics of electrical engineering and power systems. This book is available on line at various websites. The original edition published in 2007 (ISBN 978-0470-12987-6) may be still good and available at cheaper cost. The second edition is preferable.
The students may also find following MIT reports interesting from the viewpoint of energy source:
-The future of nuclear energy in a carbon-constrained world (2018), an interdisciplinary MIT study, http://energy.mit.edu/*****
-The future of solar energy (2015), an interdisciplinary MIT study, http://energy.mit.edu/*****
The following same kind of reports from the interdisciplinary MIT study are found and available at their website although some of them are old.
The future for natural gas (2011)
The future of the electric grid (2011)
The future of coal (2007)
The future of geothermal energy (2006)
Other referenced materials in the lectures will be introduced in the course of the lectures as appropriate.

履修上の注意

Students who want to take this course must attend the first class (Class 1) on Wednesday April 22. In Class 1, the actual lecture begins starting with the fundamentals of electromagnetism after brief orientation. An administrative process is also needed to be taken in Class 1 to allow the instructor to get permission from the company he works for to share his knowledge gained as an engineer in that company with the students.
The students will see basic equations of electromagnetism and electrical engineering in the introductory lectures on these topics that include trigonometric functions, differential and integral equations and complex functions. The instructor expects that the students have basic knowledge on collage level calculus and do not have much difficulties to be familiar with the equations introduced in the lectures.
