P241-0241, P241-0242, P251-0017, P251-0018
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for άbung), 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.
2V+1U+1LU (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: 2
Mandatory course: yes

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:
UI-AMT Applied Metrology
UI-T-EN Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the basic passive and active components of electrical engineering and understand their operating behavior and interaction. They will be familiar with the basics of electrical engineering and its connection to magnetism. They will observe the basic rules for handling electricity. Students will be able to perform basic electrical design tasks, understand electrical circuits and calculate simple networks. They will understand the differences between direct and alternating current systems.
Furthermore, students will be familiar with the basic structure and function of electrical machines. Based on the example of synchronous and asynchronous machines in motor and generator operation, they will be able to explain the function and power electronics required and select the appropriate machines.
