Advanced Electrical Machines

Module code: EG4211

In this module we will learn how to make detailed calculations and predictions of the operation of machines under steady state and dynamic conditions, and when connected to electronic drives. We will cover the basis of electromagnetic torque production in a wide range of electrical machines, and will look at the construction, design and operation of brushless permanent magnet dc motors, and apply appropriate analysis. We will also explore the application of appropriate detailed analysis for the evaluation of machine performance, including stator and rotor pole numbers and the relationship to the number of phase windings.
