ETeh4044, Electric Machines and Electric Drive I

The aim of the study course is to obtain the construction of electric DC and AC machines, operation, principle of action, mathematical models, operation regimes, start, switching, rotation frequency control, diagrams and work characteristics. Knowledge about electric motor application for technological equipment driving, methods for identifying the parameters of electric machines, the choice for electric machine, control and machine protection methods get obtained.

Knowledge - in the field of electric machines & electric drive systems to solve the theoretical and practical tasks in power engineering, agriculture and technological processes and to improve their operation quality.

Skills- to choose electric machines & electric drive complex, elements and components, to analyse their work process in static and dynamic modes, to compose electric machines & electric drive systems, block diagrams, to perform work process simulation in MATLAB environment, to evaluate electric machines & electric drive operation quality.

Competences - to select an appropriate electric machines & electric drive and devices, methods for identifying the parameters of electric machines, principles of control for conformable technological object, to interpret the operation data of electric machines & electric drive and to perfect their operation quality.

Test. DC machines and transformers. At least two short theoretical questions and at least one DC and transformer calculation task. (Practical works 2h)
**Part time extramural studies:**

All topics specified for full time studies are accomplished, but the number of contact hours is one half of the number specified in the calendar

Written exam. The student admitted to the examination only if the laboratory work, test and independent work is positive evaluated. At least half of the maximum score must be for the positive evaluation.

The exam consists of three questions:

1. The question about automation theory;

2. The question about practical work (EM calculation);

3. The question about laboratory work.

The student prepares a 15-20 pages e-report or oral presentation on a freely chosen theme in an area of DC machines and transformers including control schemes and examples of engineering-technical calculations.

The score of the study course exam consists of the sum of points obtained for each answer of the examination question:

- Full comprehensive, broad answer: 3 points

- Correct answer with minor flaws or errors: 2 points

- Answer that contains only basic concepts without explanation or contains significant errors: 1 point

- There are no answers, the answer is false, and the answer is very gross material errors: 0 point.

Assessment 9 or 10 points can be earned only if respectively 9 or 10 points are earned for independent work.
