Aims of the course:
In this course, students will learn about designing and functions of individual units and nodal points used in mobile energetic means. They will also learn about losses of power and performance balance within the process of energy transfer from the viewpoint of economics as well as environmental effects of mobile technology and energetic means. They will be able to evaluate efficiency of energy transfer within mobile energetic means.
