Undergraduate Course: Advanced Electrical Machines 5 (ELEE11101)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Year 5 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||The course will introduce students to the more fundamental design aspects of electrical machines, rotary and linear, in particular electromagnetic analysis for machines. Magnetic circuit modelling and finite element modelling methods will be introduced to enable calculation of magnetic fields and forces within electromagnetic devices. Modelling of different materials will be included. These techniques will then be applied to induction machines, permanent magnet machines and switched reluctance machines. For induction machines stator winding and squirrel cage rotor design will be included. D-Q analysis will be introduced as a way of modelling transient behaviour of machines. Throughout applications will be used for examples such as electric vehicles, MAGLEV systems, and renewable energy converters.
