Educational Objectives:

Professional Competence

Theoretical Knowledge

Students are able to reproduce and explain fundamental theories, principles, and methods related to the theory of alternating currents. They can describe networks of linear elements using a complex notation for voltages and currents. They can reproduce an overview of applications for the theory of alternating currents in the area of electrical engineering. Students are capable of explaining the behavior of fundamental passive and active devices as well as their impact on simple circuits.

Capabilities

Students are capable of calculating parameters within simple electrical networks at alternating currents by means of a complex notation for voltages and currents. They can appraise the fundamental effects that may occur within electrical networks at alternating currents. Students are able to analyze simple circuits such as oscillating circuits, filter, and matching networks quantitatively and dimension elements by means of a design. They can motivate and justify the fundamental elements of an electrical power supply (transformer, transmission line, compensation of reactive power, multiphase system) and are qualified to dimension their main features.

Personal Competence

Social Competence

Students are able to work together on subject related tasks in small groups. They are able to present their results effectively.

Autonomy

Students are capable to gather necessary information from the references provided and relate that information to the context of the lecture. They are able to continually reflect their knowledge by means of activities that accompany the lecture, such as online-tests and exercises that are related to the exam. Based on respective feedback, students are expected to adjust their individual learning process. They are able to draw connections between their knowledge obtained in this lecture and the content of other lectures (e.g. Electrical Engineering I, Linear Algebra, and Analysis).
