Intended learning outcomes

This course covers the steady-state conditions of rotating electric machines, their dynamics and malfunctions, having as main aims to enable the students to:

  • To recognize the most ordinary types of synchronous and DC machines.
  • To characterize the interaction of these machines with the external environment isolated, throughout torque, speed and voltage characteristics.
  • To know simple mathematic models allowing to represent the physical phenomena involved. To understand the rationale behind control processes (speed, torque, voltage), isolated or in association with similar machines.
  • To generally understand the working principle of non-conventional rotating electric machines (step motors, VRM, LIM, Universal Motors, PMM, single phase induction motors).
  • To incentivize internet research, and oral presentation, clearing paths to post graduate studies on electric machines.
  • To develop the capacity to install, operate, supervise and maintain rotating electric machines, isolated, or as part of larger systems.
