The subject provides basic knowledge about the CR power system structure and operational characteristics and electrical power systems. Then it informs about the electric strength of insulators, machines and other power system devices. It presents knowledge about damaging phenomena of insulation systems and procedures for their elimination. It enables to meet insulation systems testing and diagnostics problems.


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.
