The course has the purpose to provide the fundamentals of modeling, principles of operation and control, main basic knowledge and future developments of electrical and electromechanical conversion systems.
Knowledge of the design and operation of most common electromechanical actuators and of their most common control.
Student attendance is required. Remember that to achieve an optimum result, the student is required to attend at least 70% of the course lessons.
