Supervisor:
Department of Electrical Power Engineering
Synopsis:

This course is an introduction to the field of thermodynamic processes in thermal power plants, energy balances and structure of various renewable and conventional energy production technologies. Students will became also familiar with individual components of self consumption of power plants. The power generation and distribution are linked to high voltage systems and insulation materials. The fundamental theory of often used insulation materials and their propertis will be explained. Lightning and switching overvoltages and their impact to the insulation of electric power system will be discussed at the end of the course.

Requirements:

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.
