Summary
The subject focuses on the computer modeling and simulation of electrical and electronic systems. Namely the systems which consist of control circuits, semiconductor converters and electric motors. For the simulations of transient processes there are used software OrCAD and MATLAB with SIMULINK. The prerequisites of this subject are electronics, power electronics and mechatronic systems.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The knowledge needed to good orientation in the principles of modeling and simulation of electric and electronic systems, ability of independent analysis and synthesis of particular simulated blocs, will be achieved. The obtained knowledge should be a part of the general knowledge of electrical engineer.
