Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The aim of this module is to consider, in depth, the design and operation of synchronous, induction and DC machines. In addition, the module aims to provide an in depth knowledge of the modern power system as an interconnection of rotating electrical machines, transformers, transmission lines, switch gear, loads etc.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to:

  • Apply mathematical principles to solve analytical problems on electrical machines: synchronous, induction and DC motors for energy conversion in modern electro-mechanical systems
  • Evaluate the design and efficiency of electrical machines
  • Asses how power systems are designed, operated and controlled
  • Analyse the operation of modern technologies like transformers, transmission lines, circuit breakers etc.
