Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main aim of the subject is to obtain deeper theoretical knowledge of the area of controlled electrical drives and practial skills with their applications.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Subject deals with characteristics of DC and AC controlled electrical drives in more detail. The subject deepens the knowledge of electrical drives. The content of this subject is based on the knowledge of the electronics and mechatronic systems.

Compulsory literature:

Boldea, I., Nasar, S. A.: Electric Drives. Third Edition, CRC Press, 2016. ISBN 978-1-4987-4820-9. Leonhard, W.: Control of Electrical Drives. Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York, ISBN 3-540-59380-2, 1997.

Recommended literature:

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Verification of study: Checking test TEST No.1, TEST No.2 (see exercise) Conditions for credit: Obligatory participation in laboratory exercises. In general 3 laboratory exercises are assessed max. 20 points. All measuring protocols delivery in right term = one week after measurement lesson Pass through 2 control tests in regular terms. Test is assessed max. 10 points, i. e. max. 20 points from tests. There will be confirmed just only 80 % of obtained points in the case of different term. One of these tests it's possible to repeat, but only with 80% of achieved points and there will be written the repeated test points! Acquirement at least of 25 point from the 40 possible.
