ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING A
To be able to dimension a shipboard electric circuit, to know the concerned electric quantities and of their measures, read and interpret simple electric and logic circuits.
To provide basic theoretical knowledge of electrical and electronic devices: behavior of circuits in transient and in steady state operation, measures of voltage, current and power; operation of electrical machineries, electronic devices and logic circuits; schematic diagrams and energy balance on board.
