Electrical Sources and Systems
- Department of Electrical Power Engineering
The subject is focused on the task of power quality, its operational criteria and improvement possibilities. There are also discussed specific tasks of dispersed generation and electrical systems. The student is then informed about basic electrical energy renewable sources and their connection possibilities to the system.
