AbstractConcepts from the lectures "Networks and Circuits I and II" explored through experiments, with inductive energy transmission systems (equivalent circuit parameters, transmission characteristics, resonance compensation, high-voltage generation) and photovoltaics (solar module characteristics, power flow adjustment with DC-DC converters, electro-mechanical energy conversion) used as examples.
ObjectiveThe core topics of the course "Networks and Circuits I and II" are reviewed in practice, through experiments, in a modern laboratory environment. Furthermore, through the illustrative experiments in the fields of inductive power transfer and photovoltaics, a methodical experimental approach, the use of modern measurement equipment, and proper documentation skills are all learned.
ContentThe "Networks and Circuits Laboratory" covers core topics presented in the lectures and exercises of the courses "Networks and Circuits I and II" through experiments. These topics are demonstrated in practice within the context of selected real-world industrial applications:

- Inductive power transfer (topics: parameters of equivalent circuits, transmission characteristics, resonance compensation, and high-voltage generation); and
- Photovoltaics (topics: characteristics and power performance of a solar module, power flow and/or operating point adjustment with power electronic converters, electro-mechanical energy conversion).

In each experiment, after measuring and observing components and subsystems of the above, the structuring and overall function of the system is discussed, in order to promote higher-level abstract reasoning and synthesis skills in addition to analysis skills. Further important goals of this Laboratory Course are familiarisation with modern measuring equipment, and highlighting the importance of planning, executing, and documenting experiments and measurements in a thorough and methodical fashion.
