2. Pre-Requisites

Algebra, Calculus I, Calculus II, Physics and Advanced Mathematics courses in the Electronical Engineering study program provide the basic background for the Tecnología Eléctrica course.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

Tecnología Eléctrica course provides the basic competencies considered in the common block of any engineering degree (according to Orden CIN/351/2009): knowledge and usage of the basic principles of circuit theory and electric machines.

Tecnología Eléctrica course is related to the following courses of the Electronic Engineering degree: Physics, Algebra, Calculus I, Electronic Fundamentals, Electrical Network Analysis, Electric Power Systems and Photovoltaic Systems.

Tecnología Eléctrica course reviews concepts of circuit theory that are the basic requirements for any Electrical Engineering study and it provides systematic tools to study any electrical installation. Using circuit theory it is possible to make a precise, prompt and efficient analysis of many different electrical problems without the need of recalling the laws of Electromagnetism. Furthermore, this course introduces the electric machines, which are the key components of any power system. In particular, induction machines are the most usual components in any industrial application. Therefore, Tecnología Eléctrica course is essential for the Mechanical Engineering profession.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Progress Tests 70.00% 0.00% Two midterm exams will be held throughout the course, covering 70% of the competences.
Final test 0.00% 100.00% The final exam may include problems and questions about theoretical or lab concepts. The evaluation will consider not only the correctness of the answer explanations but also the results' consistency.
Practicum and practical activities reports assessment 30.00% 0.00% Using the Moodle platform, the stundents should submit the lab report including all the magnitudes measured in the lab as well as the corresponding computations. The evaluation of the report will consider the mistmaches between the measures and the calculated magnitudes as well as the exactness of the calculus.

Attendance to lab sessions as well as the submission of the report within the deadlines are mandatory to qualify for continuous evaluation.
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    - To pass the course it is compulsory to have a minimum score of 4 out of 10 in the two midterm tests.
    - To pass the course it is compulsory to have a minimum score of 4 out of 10 in the evaluation of the report of the laboratory sessions. Furthermore, attendance at all laboratory sessions is compulsory.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The final test will include two parts that cover all the competences of the course:
    1. Theoretical and / or practical questions. This part represents 70% of the final mark.
    2. Theoretical and practical examination of the laboratory sessions. This part represents 30% of the final mark.
    To pass the course it is compulsory to have a minimum score of 4 out of 10 in each of these parts.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Same criteria applied for the ordinary call.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same criteria applied for the ordinary call.
