Industrial Electronics Paolo Crippa
Knowledge of linear and nonlinear electronic circuits, semiconductor device operating principles, Boolean algebra, and logical networks.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
Know and understand the methods of analysis and design of electronic devices of interest for industrial applications, with an emphasis on the principles of operation of power semiconductor devices, power electronic systems and power circuits for the energy conversion.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The student is expected to achieve the ability of analyzing, choosing, and using the semiconductor power devices, to achieve the ability of analyzing and designing the systems for the static energy conversion. More in general the student will be able to exploit the acquired knowledge to understand the operation, and to put forward the design, of electronic circuits and systems commonly used in industrial applications.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The student, through the solution and the design of real-world circuits and systems, will be able to integrate the skills acquired in this course and in the other ones to refine and develop his competence in industrial electronics. The student by teamworking will acquire critical dialogue, organization, and design-oriented collaboration skills, and in general, he will improve his autonomous discernment as well as his communication ability.

Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The student learning evaluation is based on an oral test consisting in the discussion of one or more topics covered in the course. When necessary, the questions, whose answers also require short calculations or simple circuit drawings, will be carried out in writing during the oral test.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
The student, during the oral test, must show he has the skills necessary for analysing and designing electronic circuits relevant for industrial applications. In particular, he has to demonstrate to know the operating principles of power semiconductor devices, power supply electronic systems, and power circuits for the static electricity conversion.
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Attribution of the final mark on a 30-point scale.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
In order to pass the exam with the minimum mark, a student must demonstrate a sufficiently complete knowledge of the course contents.
The maximum mark is achieved by demonstrating, through the answers to the questions, a complete and thorough knowledge of the course contents.
The cum laude will be awarded to the students who, achieving the highest mark, have also demonstrated particular mastery of the subject matter of the course.
