Students are expected to have completed
Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results.
CB6 Possess and understand knowledge that provides a base or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas CB7 The students must know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of ¿¿study CB9 The students must know how to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and ultimate reasons that sustain them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way CG1 Ability to learn new methods and technologies, based on the mastery of scientific subjects and specialized techniques of Clinical Engineering, as well as to adapt to new situations. LEARNING RESULTS THAT THE STUDENT ACQUIRES In overcoming this subject, students should be able to: - Describe electrical installations and analysis of electrical machines, with special emphasis on aspects related to the design and maintenance of facilities in a clinical setting. - Describe the processes of energy conversion that occur in electric circuits and machines. - Describe the bases of maintenance and repair of electrical equipment in the hospital environment. - Obtain information from the technical documentation of the electrical installation, interpreting the symbols and rules of representation on which it is based. - Calculate characteristic parameters of single-phase and three-phase alternating current lines, identifying typical values. - Characterize the operation of electric motors and transformers, identifying their field of application in the sanitary environment. - Measure parameters in electrical installations, identifying the risks inherent in their operation and the associated protection systems. - Mount electrical installations, verifying their operation.
