Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject contents some basics of lightning and heat engineering from the point of view of terminology, description of basic relations and commercial applications of these relations in production supply of lightning and heat engineering in consumption area. Attention is devoted to all parameters of particular appliances with the view to their quality features, comfort, which they bring, and to energy savings too. After student will finish this subject, he will be able to define the basic definitions of lightning and heat engineering and mainly apply the knowledge on some specific lightning and heat appliances that occur in the market. He will understand the functional properties of electrotechnical products, which he will offer in the market. He will learn to understand the connections between individual parameters, power outputs and consumption of luminous and heat appliances.

The aim of this subject is to obtain the basic theoretical and practical knowledge in the areas of electrical light and heat in order to marketing of luminous and heating appliance. Objective of laboratory measurements and calculation practices is to acquaint the students with basic parameters and calculations of luminous and heating appliances with regard to their sale. The subject includes interpretation of principles and origin of light and heat, commentary of basic calculation relations to review and compare particular luminous and heat appliances. This subject describes the possibilities how to reach the savings thanks to advisable choice and running of particular appliances too.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Oral exam. Attendance at all of laboratory works. Processing of laboratory reports in requested date, form and way of delivery. Processing of dated up project, test. In addition: Of each of task get 1 point minimally. Each of tasks is possible to deliver only once. Repair test is possible to write only in this case: result of first = 0 point. Note: Repair test has different condition of evaluation.
