Abstract [en]

In the first year of the studies in the five-yearMaster of Science programme in Electrical Engineering at KTH,there is a course named “Electro project”. The students that takethis compulsory course choose between several projects and thispaper describes a newly invented project called Free Fall, whichpractically and theoretically demonstrates in a simple andinteresting way important electrical engineering equations forthe students. The students study, calculate and build a gondolathat first accelerates when it falls freely along a tower from itstop and then decelerate with eddy current brakes. The studentslearn apart from modelling of physical phenomena, mechanicalconstruction, validation, measurements and collaboration withinthe group as well as with the laboratory staff.
