The goal To introduce the basic mechanisms and laws of transfer of electrical energy to the heat. To introduce the technologies where such energy transfer is used and the elements of the plants.
The outcome General knowledge about electrical heating - generation of the heat from electrical energy. Design and the construction of electrical heating plants. Mechanisms of the control to save the energy needed to perform target technology process. Schematics of the connection of the plants to the electric power grid and power converters for generated needed voltage frequency.
Contents of lectures Systemizing the knowledge from Electromagnetics, Heat transfer, Power converters and Automatic control of interest in electrical heating techniques. Technologies using electrical heating – melting and processing of the metal, metallurgy (arc furnaces), drying, baking, welding, metal binding. Design end the construction of electrical devices and the electrical heating plants.
Contents of exercises Solving of the problems related to design of the electrical heating equipment and power efficiency. 6 laboratory exercises (direct resistive, induction resistive, dielectric and arc heating, Peltier elements, and FUZZY temperature control).
