MODULE DESCRIPTION

This course, together with Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering II for Mechanical Engineers and Electric Drives, imparts the electrotechnical knowledge relevant for mechanical engineering studies.  

After successfully completing this course…

  • You will know the most important electrical parameters, understand equivalent electrical circuits and know the relevant topological definitions and sign conventions;
  • You will be able to calculate linear direct current networks;
  • You will understand the methods for complex alternating current calculations and impedance definitions, and be able to apply this to calculate alternating current networks and display the results in a vector diagram;
  • You will know what complex power is and be able to calculate the effective power, reactive power and apparent power for single-phase and three-phase systems; Further, you will know the methods and requirements for power factor correction;
  • You will know the important parameters for the characterization of electrical fields in electrical conductors and non-conductors, and will be able to draw electric field lines for certain geometries including boundaries as well as be able to calculate fields for simple geometries.

COURSE REGISTRATION AND MATERIAL
