Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
Upon completion of the course, the student will
- understand the principles of the finite element method
- be able to use a finite element software to model electrical machines
- understand the numerical methods to deal with nonlinearity and time dependencies
- understand how the materials and sources are numerically modelled in electrical machines.
