In the "Electrical Energy Supply" laboratory (EEV), which accompanies the lecture of the same name, our students broaden their knowledge via practical experiments related to electrical energy transmission, safety measures and short current calculations. During the transmission of electrical energy, they observe differences between overhead power line and cable, the performance during different load cases, but also different types of errors such as short circuits or ground faults via artificial transmission lines.

Safety measures are conceptualized to protect humans from electrical shocks. In the Electrical Energy Supply laboratory, different safety measures are implemented and tested. This way, our students learn when and how they function. Short circuit calculations, an extremely useful instrument in determining the dimensioning of electrical devices and grids, are directly applied to practice grids via commercially well-established software. Additionally, the results are compared to calculations done by hand following the DIN VDE 0102 (German standard for short circuit current calculations).
