Course Objectives This course is designed to introduce undergraduate electrical engineering students to applications of electromechanical energy conversion involving dc machines, transformers, induction machines, and synchronous machines so that they will be able to apply and use these equipment
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Perform short-circuit and open-circuit tests on a transformer and determine the parameters of the equivalent circuit
  • Operate a three-phase squirrel-cage induction motor and measure the motor torque -speed and efficiency curves
  • Operate a three-phase variable field synchronous motor and measure the open circuit characteristic and V-curves
  • Analyze balanced three-phase circuits
  • Compute complex power low in balanced three-phase circuits
  • Analyze circuits with single and three phase transformers
  • Know the basic construction features of three-phase squirrel-cage induction (asynchronous) motors
  • Analyze three-phase induction motor steady state operation
  • Describe the basic construction details of cylindrical rotor and salient-pole three-phase synchronous machines
  • Understand basic methods of starting and speed control of induction and synchronous motors
Course Content This course provides an introduction to the basic principles of electromechanical energy conversion devices. Topics include three-phase circuits; magnetic circuits; theory, construction, and operation of transformers; performance characteristics and analysis of common rotating machines and their control. The concurrent laboratory work reinforces the theoretical principles involved.
