Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The target of this subject is getting a theoretical knowledge of electrical drives and practical experiences from their applications. Gained pieces of knowledge make a part of general knowledge of electrical engineer, especially concentrated on applications of electrical drives.

Teaching methods


The subject focuses on the basic knowledge of principles, design and operations of electrical drives. The prerequisites would be courses on electronics, power electronics and electrical machines.

Compulsory literature:

Boldea, I. - S.A. Nasar: Electric drives. CRC Press, ISBN 0-8493-2521-8, 1999. Leonhard, W.: Control of Electrical Drives. Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg New York, ISBN 3-540-59380-2, 1997.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Verification of study: Graduating of control tests T1 a T2 Conditions for credit: Obligatory participation in laboratory exercises. In general 4 laboratory exercises are assessed max. 5 points, i. e. max. 20 points from laboratory exercises. Obligatory finishing of 2 tests in regular term. Test is assessed max. 10 points, i. e. max. 20 points from tests. At repetition test is assessed only 80% achieved points. Student can obtain from exercises max. 40 points, for conferment inclusion it is necessary achieve min. 25 points.
