- EXA1 - Examination, 8.0, grading scale: P, F
Requirements for final grade
- Oral presentation at a seminar at KTH or at a conference/symposium outside KTH
- Approved written report
The written report should constitute a condensed summary of essential parts of the course literature in a form that can be used for a brief introduction of students at the undergraduate level of the build-up, features, functions, net interaction, and protection of transformers.
