Objectives of the course
This course is intended to provide the basic knowledge to understand the operation and the usage of the main electric machines.
Expected skills
At the end of the course, the student will be able to compute the operating point of the studied electric machines, starting from the machine ratings and measured parameters and from load data.
Basic knowledge of electromagnetics, mechanics and dynamics (from courses of Physics), knowledge of electric networks (from the course on Elecric Networks).
Direct Current Electric Machine: construction basics, machine equations, independent and series excitation, speed-torque characteristic, start-up and control.
Single Phase Transformer: ideal transformer, equivalent circuit of the real transformer, no-load test and short-circuit test, computation of parameters for the equivalent circuit, parallel connection.
Three Phase Transformer: equivalent circuit, tests for parameter identification on the equivalent circuit, parallel connection, group.
Induction Motor: construction basics, principle of operation, equivalent circuit, no-load test and short-circuit test, speed-torque characteristics, start-up and control.
Laboratories and/or exercises
Numeric exercises. Unmounting of small electric machines as construction examples.
