Course detail

# Electrical Engineering Tutorial

This course should help to the students graduated in grammar school to understand more difficult areas of subject Electrical engineering 1 (BEL1) and to gain practical skill for realization of laboratory experiments.
Topics of the course are the basics measurements in laboratories, production and distribution of electricity. Students will also practice the practical application of special purpose and universal methods of analysis of resistor circuits encountered in the course Electrical Engineering 1.

Language of instruction

Czech

Number of ECTS credits

2

Mode of study

Not applicable.

Entry knowledge

The subject knowledge on the secondary school level is required. In the range of the used mathematical tools students should be able to:
- editing mathematical expressions;
- calculate the solution of simple linear equations ;
- apply the basics of matrix calculus;
- calculate the derivative, definite and indefinite integrals of simple linear functions of one variable and basic trigonometric functions.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

For obtaining the examination it is necessary to actively attend all laboratory and computational exercises that take place in the 2rd to 11 week of the semester.
Attendance at laboratory and computational classes (2 to 11 week of semester) is mandatory. Properly excused absences can be substituted, usually in the last week of the semester.

Aims

The aim of the course is to supplement the knowledge of difficult parts of the course Electrical Engineering 1, using combined numerical and laboratory exercises, and at the same time to embrace the principles of the implementation of practical experiments.
After completing the course student will be able to:
- describe the characteristics of ideal and real electrical circuit elements,
- realize simple laboratory tasks according to the specified schema,
- measure and discuss the value of electrical quantities in stationary circuits,
- apply circuit simulator for solving simple circuits,
- analyze stationary circuits using Node Voltage Method and/or Current Loops Method,
- calculate basic types of magnetic circuits.

Study aids
