Course content

This course is giving a introduction to design , mode of operation and use of electrical machines. The understanding of physical phenomena and corresponding mathematical modeling is in focus. The machines are analyzed in steady state operations. The course is covering transformers, DC machines, asynchroneous and synchroneous machines including permanent magnet machines. Analysis of magnetic field in machines and transformeres, induced voltages, forces etc. It is focused on the physical understading and how machines work and are designed. The characteristics of different machines is explained with emphasis on steady state conditions and with application description.

Learning outcome

After finishing the course the candidate is to know:
- The electromagnetic laws used to calculate main parameters such as induced voltage, forces and other design parameters.
- how the various machines works
- The mathematical models and circuit models and how to determine corresponding parameters.
- Design principles
- Applications and how the machines are used.

After finishing the course the candidate is expected to
- Complete simple designs
- Understand and analyze the machines in steady state operations

The student will also have increased his/hers abilities to use instruments and equipment in the laboratory.
