Course content

The course provides the basics for analysis and use of electric and electronic components in power, telecommunication and cybernetic systems. The course also aims to provide basic training in laboratory work for the design and implementation of digital control of electric motors, in data handling/analysis.

Learning outcome

Knowledge: After completing the course the student shall understand and be able to perform: - stationary analysis of circuits with sinusoidal waves, dynamic analysis of RLC-circuits in the time domain - current, voltage and power calculations- Electromagnetism and magnetic coupling - linear and ideal transformer - use of Laplace transform for transfer function in the design of controllers for industrial systems - electricity generation-Direct and alternating current motors- Power supplies - frequency selective circuits; passive filters Skills: After completing the course, the student shall have: - a good basis for analysis of electrical and electronic circuits, electric power generation, power supplies, and control design of industrial systems. - experience in the basics of the design of digital controllers for electric motors through simple laboratory setups and the use of standard instruments.

Learning methods and activities
