Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to:  work confidently with the basic electrotechnical variables and describe resistors, capacitors, coils, diodes, transistors as well as their function and exemplary application.  apply different model descriptions of electrical components and networks in a problemadapted way and thus, be able to perform simple calculations by themselves.  analyze and calculate simple problems in electromagnetic fields and applications of the law of induction.  name, correctly apply and interpret basic electrical and electronic equations.  recognize and explain the interaction between electrical and magnetic circuits.  name an application of the theory in a vehicle and explain it.
