Course description

Fundamentals of physics.

Fundamentals of electrotechnics.

Fundamentals of electric measurements theory.

The course introduces the main components of an aeronautical electrical system, with a particular focus on power electronics converters and electrical machines.

At the end of the course the student will know the main aeronautical electrical system components used to generate, distribute and consume the electric energy on board the aircraft. The autonomy of judgment will be developed both by deepening the design of the experiments and by the critical analysis of experimental data. The part of the course dedicated to the exercises includes group work. Communication skills and learning abilities will also be verified during the oral examination.

Whole class teaching (lectures).

Computer-aided simulations and laboratory experiences.

Oral exam (plus written report on the laboratory experiences)
