Course detail

# Selected Topics of Electrical Engineering in English

The course deals with the selected parts of the fundamentals of electricity. Possible methods of linear circuit analysis in stationary and harmonic steady state are discussed, including three-phase system. Another part of the course is dedicated to non-linear circuits, magnetic circuits and the theory of homogeneous transmission line. Lectures are held in English.

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;
- use mathematics in the field of complex numbers;
- 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

To obtain examination the participation on min. 75 % of the seminars is required. Requirements for completion of a course are: to gain examination and to perform a final written test, in which a student can receive a maximum of 100 pts. Minimal necessary achieved total mark to pass this course is 50 points.
Attendance at seminars is controlled because of the required 75 % participation.

Aims

The aim of the course is to repeat and deepen some knowledge of electrical engineering and circuit theory taught in the first year of undergraduate study and introduce the corresponding English terms.
The student is able to:
- Describe the properties of ideal and real circuit elements;
- Apply the analysis of linear circuits in stationary and harmonic steady state;
- Calculate the characteristic values of time-varying voltage and current waveforms and describe the principle and the importance of harmonic analysis of signals;
- Describe methods for solving of nonlinear non-conservative circuits and apply them to simple circuits;
- Describe the basic values and laws of magnetic circuits as they are used to calculate the parameters of specified magnetic circuit;
- Describe the parameters of transmission lines and explain the importance of secondary line parameters.
Students will be equipped with the appropriate technical terminology in English.
