Examination methods

Written 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. categorise basic characteristics and types of power plants

2. evaluate technical characteristics of conventional and non-conventional power plants

3. categorise short circuit currents in the power system

4. compare and estimate basic characteristics (i.e. power, energy, efficiency and capacity factor) of different types of power plants

5. simulate power flows and short circuits in a power system and distinguish the main parts of power plants
