The course is focused on contact and solid-state switching devices in LV networks. Basic topologies AC switches and stress of their components, systems with modern semiconductor devices and their protection circuits, testing electrical devices. The course also deals with the general theory of electrical machines. Magnetic field. Fundamentals of commutation. The transformer efficiency, voltage drop. Transients - switch to the network, a short circuit. Mathematical model of synchronous and asynchronous machines. A rotating magnetic field. Induction machine, starting and speed control. Influence of harmonic magnetic field. Single-phase induction motor. Work synchronous machine on a network. Torque, stability, overload capacity.
