Introduce students to the basic concepts implemented in electrotechnical systems. Particular emphasis is placed on the energy aspect. Methods and tools for analysis and design of electrical systems allow the understanding of the functioning of electrical equipment used in the production, transportation and utilization of electrical energy. For each topic, the course begins with an overview of industrial applications of everyday life in which the production, transportation, processing or use of electrical energy comes. Technological aspects and the orders of magnitude are discussed. The set aim, in teaching terms, is the acquisition of a global comprehension of the energy conversion systems that an engineer will meet in his professional and personal life.
