The aim of the course is to become students acquainted with heat transfer laws, the design and use of resistive, dielectric, induction and arc electro-heat devices, thermal comfort of human being, heating of interiors and examples of particular problems of electro-heat devices design and calculations. The next part of the course acquaints students with basics of photometry, light measurement, light sources, luminaires and fundamentals of indoor and outdoor lighting.


Requirements to obtain the assessment are exercises attendance and a term thesis elaborating.

Successful exam passing is determined in the Study and Examination Code of CTU in Prague.
