Forms of Teaching
Teaching on the subject is organized through two teaching cycles. The first cycle consists of 7 weeks of classes and midterm exams, while the second cycle contains 6 weeks of classes and a final exam. Classes are conducted for a total of 15 weeks with a weekly load of 2 hours.Independent assignments
Checking the acquired knowledge through practical homework tasks.Laboratory
As part of laboratory exercises, students will be able to practice measurements on transformers and magnetic measurements, and several demonstration exercises in the field of high voltage and current measurement techniques will be presented as well.
