Course detail

Electrical heat technology

FEKT-NELTAcad. year: 2019/2020

Basic technical aplication electrical heating principles in industrial area. It's resistant heating, electric arc aplication, inductive and microwave heating, electron heating. Modern conceptions are represented by plasmatic and electron heating and laser applications. In nonindustrial area are described electrical energy using to heating of bulding and air-conditioning. It's also described economical views on electrical heating systems. Electrical energy in use as ecological conception of energy.

Learning outcomes of the course unit
