Parts 1
Annotation The subject is devoted to simulation of electrical circuits. Principles of composing of differential equation systems for electrical equipment, of their numerical calculation, and its features in MATLAB are given in the first significant part of the course. The second part is devoted to PSPICE circuit description language and to the features of its practical utilization. The theoretical part of the course deals with solutions of ordinary differential equation systems and basics principles of PSPICE. The practical (most important) part of the course includes various examples of simulation of electrical equipment..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Teach a student to compose mathematical models for electrical equipment and to use it in the design, analysis and optimization of the equipment. Teach the student to solve numerically ordinary differential equation systems ant to estimate the accuracy of the calculations. Teach the student to use practically for the mentioned purposes the programs MATLAB, its graphical environment SIMULINK, circuit description language PSPICE, as well as schematic editors that allow this languages for purpose of simulation.
