48571 Electrical Machines6cp; 5hpw, 2hpw (lecture); 3hpw (tutoria/laboratory), online and on campus
Requisite(s): 48531 Electromechanical Automation
Recommended studies: advanced physics and calculus are essential for this subject, as well as an understanding of circuit theory and machine principles
Fields of practice: Electrical Engineering major
This subject aims to introduce to students modern electrical machines and drives, including introduction of electrical machine technology and applications, Matlab/Simulink models of power electronic converters, single phase and three phase transformers, high frequency transformers used in power electronic circuits, fundamentals of electrical drives, DC machines and drives, synchronous machines and drives, induction machines and drives, and switched reluctance machines. Issues such as variable speed drive and energy efficiency are addressed. The numerical simulation of various modern drive systems is presented. The subject is delivered through lectures, tutorials, laboratory experiments and assignments. Students are also required to conduct four labs for measuring the parameters and performance of various electrical machines and four assignments for numerical simulation of various electrical machines and drive systems with the help of the lecturer and tutor.
