Subject fundamentals
The task of the course is the description and the analysis of ac electric drives, specifically high performances electric drives for application in industrial and civil environments.
The different typologies of electric drives are analysed with specific reference to modern electrical machines and the choices in the design process are studied.
Expected learning outcomes
Ability to know the behaviour of modern ac electric drives and to connect the performances with the design choices
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
The knowledge of the behaviour and design of electric machines, automatic control and dc electric drives are assumed as prerequisite for the course.
The contents of the course are:
Synchronous machines
Dc brushless drives (trapezoidal emfs), ac brushless drives (sinusoidal emfs (25 h).
Ac brushless drives with concentrated windings (10 h).
Synchronous reluctance drives (10 h).
Permanent magnet assisted synchronous reluctance drives and their relations with anisotropic ac brushless drives (30 h).
High performance induction motor drives (18 h).
Delivery modes
Simulation and computational program will be made available for numerical exercises during the course.
Laboratory experiments are also scheduled (6 h).
Texts, readings, handouts and other learning resources
The slides employed during the lessons will be available at the start of the course with copies of scientific papers related to electric drives.
If required additional material will be supplied during the course.
Assessment and grading criteria
Oral examination to evaluate the knowledge of the student on the topic of the course. The oral examination can last up to 1 hour.
