Electromechanical energy conversion; linear actuators; torque/speed of rotating devices; reluctance, stepper, permanent-magnet, induction, brushless-DC motors and DC motors; actuator/motor drive circuits/controllers. Credit will only be given for one of ELEC 344, EECE 370, ELEC 342, EECE 374, or ELEC 343.
There will be 5 Lab Experiments. Laboratory experiments are an integral part of this course. In order to pass this course all students are required to attend, perform adequately and write reports for all experiments.
Lab 1 - Linear Solenoid Actuator
Lab 2 - PM Brushed DC Motors
Lab 3 - Stepper Motors
Lab 4 - PM Syn. and Brushless DC Motors
Lab 5 - Induction Motors & VFDs
