Requirements for awarding credit points

Written exam. The student admitted to the examination only if the laboratory work, test and independent work is positive evaluated. At least half of the maximum score must be for the positive evaluation.
The exam consists of three questions:
1. The question about automation theory;
2. The question about practical work (EM calculation);
3. The question about laboratory work.

Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

The student prepares a 15-20 pages e-report or oral presentation on a freely chosen theme in an area of DC machines and transformers including control schemes and examples of engineering-technical calculations.

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

The score of the study course exam consists of the sum of points obtained for each answer of the examination question:
- Full comprehensive, broad answer: 3 points
- Correct answer with minor flaws or errors: 2 points
- Answer that contains only basic concepts without explanation or contains significant errors: 1 point
-There are no answers, the answer is false, and the answer is very gross material errors: 0 point.
Assessment 9 or 10 points can be earned only if respectively 9 or 10 points are earned for independent work.
