OVERVIEW

At the end of the course, students will acquire the tools to analyse electrical circuits, both DC and AC (single and three phase), tools needed in order to perform a basic design of an onboard electric system.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Provide basic theoretical knowledge of electrical engineering and electronics : the behavior of an electrical circuit direct and alternating current, transient and steady state ; measurements of certain electrical quantities ; operation of electrical and electronic components of some machines ; combinatorial logic networks ; electricity balance ; systems and schemes .

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The module aims at providing basic knowledges on circuit theory, propaedeutic to perform a basic design of an onboard electric system.
In particular, when completed the course, students will be able to analyse:

- DC circuits
- AC circuits
- simple transients

both employing both systematic methods (nodal and mesh analysis) and by simplifying the circuit by means of Thévenin and Norton theorems, Millman formulas, etc.

Students will also acquire a basic knowledge of:
- electronic devices and amplifiers
- electrical machines
- power systems

Teaching methods

Lessons (theory and exercises): about 60 hours

Oral exam
