OVERVIEW

The course of "Electric Systems for Energy" is of very important in the  background of an industrial engineer, who needs in-depth knowledge on the production, distribution and use of electricity topics and who must be able to manage optimally processes based on the use of electricity.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the basic knowledge of circuit theory and applies it to the resolution of real electrical networks

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course would like to provide the basic knowledge of the theory of circuits and  to analyse aspects of electrical systems, with the aim of linking together the general principles, the physical of the phenomena described and the applications at industrial level.

This basic knowledge will be of fundamental importance to the student in his subsequent training course in the energy engineering sector, since themes today of strong industrial and social interest, such as modelling of renewable energy sources, smart grids and energy management systems, can not disregard the bases provided by the course of Electrical Systems for Energy.

PREREQUISITES

Basic knowledge of linear algebra, complex numbers and differential equations

Teaching methods

Mix of theoretical lessons and resolution of practical test networks.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Bipoles and lumped parameters approach. Stationary linear networks. Kirchhoff laws, Thevenin, Norton and Tellegen theorems. General properties of linear circuits

Linear networks in dynamic evolution: charge and discharge of capacitors and inductors.

Sinusoidal steady-state analysis: phasors. Power and energy. Series and Parallel resonance. Power factor compensation.

Thre-phase systems. Measure of electrical quantities.

TEACHERS AND EXAM BOARD

Ricevimento: The students can  always meet the teacher outside the classroom in order to ask for some clarifications or integrations with respect to the concepts explained during the lessons, provided that they fix an appointment directly with the teacher (reference phone and e-mail are given to the students during the first lesson of the course).

Ricevimento: Students wishing further clarifications are received on appointment (e-mail: massimo.brignone@unige.it), both using remote meetings (via Microsotf Teams) as well as frontal meeting. Obviously the second option is strectly dependent on the "nCOVID-19" emergency.

EXAMS

Exam description

Oral examination.

Assessment methods

The methodology for evaluating  the learning outcomes acquired by the student is based  on the continuous interaction in the classroom during the course, in the practical part consisting of solving simple electric circuits, and collect all these information in the oral part of the exam.
