This course has two weekly sessions alternating a theoretical session and a practical one:
THEORY - AGGREGATE GROUP
Theoretical concepts will be explained during lectures based on slide presentations available on Aula Global together with the solution of small problems on the blackboard. Additional multimedia material could be provided during the course. It is highly recommendable to read/hear/view the material before the class.
PRACTICE - SMALL GROUP
The teacher will solve problems using the knowledge already presented in the previous lectures and propose additional exercises to the students to practice during the class.
Attendance is optional, but if you want to attend you need to inscribe in the group lists. There are three lab sessions:
- Basic concepts and DC systems
- AC systems
- Three-phase AC systems
Safety in the lab is a major issue. No one should turn on any devices without the supervision of the laboratory teacher. Personal and partner´s safety are the most important safety issues. Equipment safety is also important. Safety rules and indications from the teacher must always be followed. Breaking this rule may cause expulsion from the course.
There is a lab report for every session. In this report, there is a part to be completed before the lab session. Completion of this part is mandatory to get into the lab. All reports will be checked and validated. Those who fail in this part won´t be allowed in the lab.
The lab exam consists of simple exercises about different aspects learnt during the lab sessions, i.e. how to connect a voltmeter/ammeter, properly analyzing a waveform in an oscilloscope, delta/star connection of three-phase loads and so on. The evaluation of the laboratory part will be the grade of the lab exam. The lab reports will not be graded.
