Overview

To provide module participants with in-depth knowledge of the characteristics and models of various types of electrical machines, of the operation and control of these machines as generators and motors, and the ability to design the machines and their control systems. The importance of rotating electrical machines as energy converters is ever growing, not just in large electric power plants but also in smaller distributed generators driven by gas, hydro and wind turbines. They are also increasingly used for electric propulsion in electric and hybrid-electric vehicles and marine vessels, besides electric railways. The topics are grouped into three areas:

  • Modelling and Analysis of Electrical Machines
  • Design of Electrical Machines
  • Control Systems for Electrical Machines as Motors and Generators

What Industry Experts Say

Extract from preface of an official reference book used for this module:

“Calculation and design of electrical machines and drives remain challenging tasks. However, this becomes even more and more important as there are increasing numbers of applications being equipped with electrical machines. Some recent examples well-known to the public are wind energy generators and electrical traction drives in the automotive industry. To realize optimal solutions for electrical drive systems it is necessary not only to know some basic equations for machine calculation, but also to deeply understand the principles and limitations of electrical machines and drives.”

– [Dieter Gerling, “Electrical Machines - Mathematical Fundamentals of Machine Topologies”, Springer-Verlag, 2015]
