Course lecturers



Provide students with practical knowledge from the field of mechanical and electrical calculations of transmission power lines. Students will learn about electrical characteristics and parameters of overhead power lines and underground cables. Students will obtain knowledge to calculate and choose the cross section of transmission line conductors, their mechanical and electrical characteristics. Students will acquire skills to work with software for computation of voltage drops, electrical losses, voltage and current conditions on overhead and cable lines. Also, students will acquire skills for the calculation of transfer voltage through cable armature.

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. understand mechanical and electrical characteristics of overhead lines

2. compute and evaluate the values of electrical parameters for overhead lines and cables

3. design and evaluate an overhead line with all mechanical and electrical characteristics

4. create overhead and cable networks using a software tool and check the selection of cross sections according to voltage drops and short circuit criteria

5. evaluate the calculations for the coefficient of transfer potential for cables which connect transformer station grounding systems
