This course provides an introduction to the more common types of electrical machines for students, who, as engineers, will treat with electrical machines as a critical element of a system or subsystems. Electronic and mechanical drive systems, control systems and power systems depend on the functioning characteristics of electrical machines. This course will provide the depth necessary for students requiring a comprehensive understanding of the steadystate behaviour of the basic electrical machines. The principles of operation, steady state analysis and application of four machines, in particular, will be discussed. These are transformers, three-phase induction motors, synchronous machines and DC machines. Great emphasis will be placed on problem solving and students are strongly advised to budget adequate time for this activity, throughout the semester.
Pre-requisites:ECNG1000 and ECNG1015
