Module contents

The module covers he basic topics of electrical energy system which should be present in the knowledge of every electrical engineer. This includes the structure and the main components of the electrical power network, the three-phase theory and the transformer. Concerning the electrical drives the main components and behavior of the machines and the power electronics are introduced.
