Notes for an Introductory Course on Electrical Machines and Drives
by E.G. Strangas
Publisher: Michigan State University 2005
Number of pages: 132
The purpose of these notes is be used to introduce Electrical Engineering students to Electrical Machines, Power Electronics and Electrical Drives. Starting from basic concepts, the student is led to understand how force, torque, induced voltages and currents are developed in an electrical machine. Then models of the machines are developed, in terms of both simplified equations and of equivalent circuits, leading to the basic understanding of modern machines and drives. Power electronics are introduced, at the device and systems level, and electrical drives are discussed.
