OverviewThis is an introductory course in electrical engineering that deals with electrical to mechanical energy conversion and vice-versa. Here concepts about electrical machines and their performance in high power system are developed. Electrical machines covered in this course are transformers, electric motors (Induction, Synchronous and DC) and synchronous generators. A new genre of machines, the variable reluctance machines (or stepping motors) will also be studied. An introduction to motor controllers will also be made in this course.
