Examination methods

Project assignment and oral exam.

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 types, operation and components of power networks

2. categorise equivalent schemes of power system components and transmission equations

3. evaluate geometric mean distance method calculation of unit inductance and capacitance

4. evaluate calculation of current and voltage conditions on the transmission line using an equivalent PI-scheme and transmission equations

5. make mechanical calculations of an overhead line

6. interpret current and voltage conditions on different power system nodes and branches
