Basic Electrics & Electronics

This module  introduces the basics of electrical engineering such as direct and alternating current, semiconductors, basic electrical circuits. It also explains the fundamentals of control technology and the operating principles of circuits with contacts. It then discusses the issue of electrical protective measures for power supply systems, and using measuring devices for testing purposes. In the end, it explains the fundamentals of intelligent solutions and building automation.
