Objectives of the course
The course gives the basic of the design for residential, industrial and commercial power systems. The course will be given in the first period of the semester and will be followed, in the second part of the semester, by the successive module Progettazione di Impianti Elettrici. The student will be asked to prepare the preliminary design of an installation, with all the pertinent computations, relations and drawings.
The course is intended for engineers with professional motivations.
Expected skills
Basic concepts of the electrical power system design. Ability to use specialized software for electric computations and drawings (Autocad).
