At first a physical description of basic properties and basic types of materials for electrical engineering is carried out. Types of conductors, superconductors, insulators, magnetic materials and semiconductors, which are used in power electrical engineering, are presented. The stress is put on relationships between properties, technology and the use. The student will meet, in higher detail, with ceramics for electrical engineering, with properties of mica, glass and their applications, with environmental conductive joining, with materials for thin and thick films and with selected nanomaterials and their applications.

Study targets:

The aim is to identify the structure and properties of basic materials used in electrical power and to become familiar with the measurement of these properties. Acquired knowledge is essential for the subsequent courses of technological nature.

Course outlines:

1. Conductive and superconductive properties of materials. Printed circuit boards.
2. Insulating properties of materials. Insulating systems of electrical machines.
3. Conductive connection in electrical engineering. Lead-free solders. Electrically conductive adhesives.
4. Materials for thin and thick films.
5. Fiber optical waveguides.
6. Magnetic properties of materials and their relationship with technology.
7. Materials for magnetic circuits in power applications.
8. Semiconductive properties of materials and their relationship with technology. Basic semiconductive materials.
9. Manufacturing of semiconductive materials.
10. Insulating properties of materials.
11. Ceramics and ceramic insulators.
12. Organic insulators in power electrical engineering. Composites.
13. Manufacturing and applications of selected types of organic materials. Ageing of organic materials.
14. Nanomaterials and smart materials.

Exercises outline:

1. Prezentation of laboratory excercises.
2. Demonstration of laboratory excercises.
3. Measurement of anisotropy of Si sheets.
4. Measurement of properties of semiconductive Si
5. Mechanical properties of solids.
6. Dielectric properties of solids in dependence on the temperature.
7. Test.
8. Dielectric properties of solids in dependence on the frequency.
9. Measurement of resistivity of insulators.
10. Measurement of electrical strength of insulating foils.
11. Measurement of quality of contacts between thin and thick films.
12. Measurement of some properties of thick films.
13. Reserve, addition of missing measurements.
14. Assessment.
