    Condition Knowledge gained on courses that form the core of Power engineering department, Power converter and drives and Power systems on School of Electrical Engineering Electrical drives
    The goal Students are introduced to present state-of-the-art of the Electrical drives, systems and methods for control and supervision of electrical drives, analysis, integration of necessary equipment, selection of structure and parameters of drives. Students are introduced with actual chalenges and modern solutions in industrial electrical drives.
    The outcome Knowledge of present state of the art and modern solutions in the field of electrical drives and controlled electrical drives. Overview of actual development directions in the field. Selection of optimal structure in the defined project conditions. Selection of possible solutions and equipment for specific application of electrical drives.
