Examination methods

Students' evaluation during the course and oral examination for students that satisfy by scoring, written and oral examination for other students.

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. describe the construction and operation principle of asynchronous, synchronous and DC machines

2. propose the operating state of the selected electrical machine that meets the specified operating mode of the electric drive

3. recommend power and control characteristics of electronic power inverters that meet certain drive

4. recommend the control mode for the selected application of an electrical machine

5. calculate and interpret selected numerical examples in the field of electrical machines and drive

6. interpret the collected measurement data and results on electrical machines and drives in unloaded and voltage conditions

7. organise prescribed basic measurements of electrical, mechanical and thermal data on an electrical machine
