Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. create vehicle drive models for understanding the basics of dynamics, and perform simulation results analysis

2. analyse basic control techniques for energy flows in a vehicle by applying power electronic converters

3. understand the operating principles, construction parts, and the role of electrical machines in vehicles

4. classify electrical power supply systems and energy storage in vehicles

5. create models of basic energy storage systems in a vehicle and perform a critical analysis of simulation results
