Prerequisites: Knowledge of the topics developed in the courses of Mathematics and Physics that are included in the Syllabus and that are given before this course.
Target skills and knowledge: The course provides basic notions of electromagnetics from the conductive current field, to electrostatic field and electromagnetic field.
The course presents the methods to analyze linear networks in DC and steady-state AC conditions for single phase and three phase.
The course provides the electromagnetism basis of the electro-technical applications.
Examination methods: Written examination including three exercises plus face to face examination
Assessment criteria: Pass the written examination with a mark higher than 16/30.
Pass the face to face examination that includes 2 questions one for each section of the course with a mark higher than 18/30 as global evaluation of the two parts of the examination.
Course unit contents: Linear electric networks in DC conditions. Kirchhoff laws. Linear DC networks main analysis methods. Conduction current field, governing equations, material properties, power dissipated in the materials, examples of resistances and applications.
