Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

1. The purpose of this course is that students get an idea of the basic principles of electrotechnics, to a degree necessary for Faculty of safety engineering graduates. 2. Students should be able to understand the connection between these theoretical principles and practical ways of using electrical energy. Special attention should be paid to practical things that students will need in their future career. Students will also learn basic facts about protection against injuries in electrotechnics, and the most important legal regulations and standards that they can encounter.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs
Project work


The subject resumes on knowledge of Basic of Electrical Engineering got at physics. Students are acquainted with solving of electrical circuits, principles of the measurement of electric and non-electric quantities, with function principles and operation properties of electrical machines and instruments; with elements of electrical drives, solid-state engineering, electrical heat and with elements of production and distribution of electrical power. Specifications of concept methods of electric current injury protection are a part of the education as well.
