Semester in Germany

Hello. I am a 5th year student of the ‘EП-81мн’ group, Andriy Otroshko. During the winter semester, I studied at Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen under a double degree program. The training was conducted within the framework of the DAAD International Program on the basis of a new specialty in THM – Computer, Control and Communication Engineering (CCCE).

Our group consisted of 11 students, including 4 students from our faculty of Electric power engineering and automcatics, 3 from India, and on one of Pakistan, Indonesia, Paraguay and Germany. There were 6 credit modules in the program:

  • English,
  • cyber-security,
  • basics of designing smart grids,
  • modeling of electromechanical systems,
  • methods of control of electric drives,
  • inter-disciplinary project on the Internet of Things.

Lectures were conducted in blocks of 2 classes, which lasted 1.5 hours each. All classes are conducted by competent teachers using modern technology.

Additionally, I was responsible for creating an algorithm for steering the front axle of an autonomous car model. Empirically, a kinematic model of a machine was created, and then a state-space controller for this model was developed. The model was compiled in the Matlab, the Simulink toolbox, and then, using the built-in tools, it was translated into programming language C and implemented on a microcontroller device.

We lived in a hostel in a separate room of 13 m2. Each room has several cabinets, a bed, a work desk, a sink. You can connect to the fast unlimited Internet with an Ethernet cable. The interior looks like this.
