A student will, at first, meet with information about basic types of materials for electrical engineering, their properties, technologies and applications. The next task is focused on the fundamentals, function and service characteristics of transformers, power electronic converters, generators, DC and AC motors and contact electric apparatus. The problems are tested on the mains supply real units. The third part of the course deals with power electrical engineering, with the basic characteristic of a power system in the Czech Rep. and with types, operational modes and environmental impact of different types of power sources.
Active attendance and accomplishment of tasks at tutorials are necessary conditions for award an assessment. A student must get an assessment before an examination. A knowledge of a lectured and tutorial matters will be required at examination.
Student will learn basic types of materials for electrical production, basic types of electrical machines, apparatusses and drivers and with basic types of power stations and distribution nets.
