Course content

The course will give the cadet broad knowledge of electrical circuits which is an important tool in engineering problem solving, and forms a good academic basis for further specialisation and the bachelor’s thesis. The course covers circuit elements, passive sign convention and Kirchhoff'’s voltage law. The course will give the cadet an introduction to methods of circuit analysis, such as the node voltage method, source transformations, Thevenin and Norton equivalents and the mode-superposition method.

Furthermore, inductance, capacitance, charging and capacitor and transient discharge are covered in 1st and 2nd order circuits. Current and voltage indicators, analysis techniques in the frequency domain, instantaneous power, complex power and power calculations are covered within alternating current. In addition, the course contains three-phase circuits and power calculations of these.

STCW code tables: A-III/1, A-III/2, A-III/6, A-III/7
STCW function: Marine engineering at the operative and management levels, electrical, electronic and control systems at the support, operational and management levels, maintenance and repairs at the operational and support levels, as well as providing guidance for the engine department.

​The course is planned to be given by a civilian university.

Learning outcome


After completing the course, the cadet is able to:

  • explain key concepts, results and methods in the electronics field of study
  • explain when different results and methods can be applied to solve engineering and other practical problems.


After completing the course, the cadet is able to:

  • Conduct electrotechnical modelling
  • reason systematically, solve electrotechnical problems and explain his/her results in a manner that sheds light on a problem.
  • apply and explain methods of grid calculation and analysis
  • use measuring equipment in the laboratory, as well as be able to produce and interpret measurement data
  • use relevant computer tools to analyse basic and more advanced circuits

General competences

After completing the course, the cadet is able to:

  • communicate with others about topics in electronics, both verbally, in writing and with a system of formulas
  • explain how new electrotechnical knowledge and methods are developed, and what significance these have for the engineering practice
Working and learning activities

Emphasis will be placed on using examples from other courses and from service to illustrate topics in the course, cf. the Navy's education programmes’ item Integration and Relevance.

· Curriculum review using questions/discussions

· Calculation exercises and exercise review by student/teacher

· Student presentations, compulsory assignments, tutorials and independent study.

· Laboratory exercises and computer simulations  

· Tests
