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 problem-adapted 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.
