P212-0019, P212-0020
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
3V+1U (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 5
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam, practical exam with composition (2 lab experiments, ungraded)

Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr. Michael Igel
Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Michael Igel

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to apply modal transformations to calculate symmetric and asymmetric network states in forward and backward transformations. They will be able to calculate voltages and currents in the symmetrical and asymmetrical normal and short-circuit operation of electrical power supply networks with the aid of symmetrical components. Students will be able to create the equivalent circuit diagram of an electrical power supply network in symmetric components and calculate short-circuit currents and node voltages. They will be able to select equivalent circuits for equipment on a case-by-case basis and parameterize them with nameplate data. They will able to calculate wire nameplate data from the wires´ geometrical and electrical parameters. Students will be able to analyze the design and structure of switchgear and assess the significance and functionality of the components used in it.
