5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

Discipline "High-Voltage Engineering Equipment" is part of the fundamental cycle and professionally oriented cours. On the base of the acquired knowledge with the main theoretical positions electro physical processes that occur in the insulating constructions under the action of high voltages, methods of regulation of electric fields, protection of electrical installations from the effects of lightning and internal overvoltages a bachelor (later engineer) will be able to perform professional activities in electric power companies as to the operation of high-voltage electrical power systems.

The place of academic discipline in the structural and logical scheme of study according to the educational program
