Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The module aims to develop an understanding of electrical power generation, transmission, distribution and consumption and of how integrated engineering systems with energy conversion stages operate. It also aims to an understanding of the underpinning science behind energy conversion in electromechanical systems and instil the fundamental engineering principles and mathematical techniques of electromechanical power conversion. The module aims to show applications of instrumentation and measurement in integrated electromechanical engineering systems, apply the principles of engineering control and feedback and design an electromechanical system with motors, actuators, sensors, control, etc.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: • Apply the mathematical principles and formulations behind real, reactive, complex and apparent power. • Evaluate the design and efficiency of a power system with transformers and motors • Appreciate and understand the operation of motors for energy conversion in modern electro-mechanical systems • Use sensors, op-amps, actuators and feedback to implement control in modern electromechanical systems • Understand measurement and instrumentation in modern electro-mechanical systems. • Conceptualise, design and evaluate an electro-mechanical system
