    The goal Introduction to fundamentals of heat and mass transfer. Understanding the nature of heating of thermal processes in power components due to energy losses and generated heat. Training students to apply knowledge from the general theory of heat and mass transfer in the practice of design, operation, monitoring and protection of power components. Illustration of examples of real power components.
    The outcome Skills to solve wide range of thermal problems appearing in practice of design and utilisation of electric power components. Education about classical (simplified) practical methods, their limitations and practical benefits of using deeper physically based methods and up to date software tools.
    Contents of lectures Conduction, convection and radiation.Heat transfer by mass transfer.Rated power of electric power components,defined by allowable temperature for applied class of insulation.Heat exchangers.Heat sinks.Examples of thermal design of power components. Measuring temperature.Thermal type tests.Thermal calculations in practice of utilization of power components (loading, monitoring and protection).
    Contents of exercises Exercises on board and 6 laboratory exercises (4 classical and 2 on computer - one simulation of transient thermal process and one based on the finite-elements software).
