EECS 419 - Electric Machinery and Drives
Section: 001
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS)
Department: CoE Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
4 (Non-LSA credit).
Requirements & Distribution:
Enforced Prerequisites:
PHYSICS 240 or PHYSICS 260 and EECS 215 and EECS 216 or graduate standing.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

Generation of forces and torques in electromechanical devices. Power electronic drives, motion control. DC machines. AC machines, surface mount permanent magnet machines, induction machines. Applications examined include electric propulsion drives for electric/hybrid vehicles, generators for wind turbines, and high-speed motor/alternators for flywheel energy storage systems. Laboratory experience with electric drives.

In the struggle to address today’s energy and environmental challenges, many potential solutions require electro-mechanical energy conversion. Examples include electric propulsion drives for electric and hybrid electric vehicles, generators for wind turbines, and high-speed motor/alternators for flywheel energy storage systems.

Each of these systems contains: an electric machine operating either as a motor, a generator, or both; a power electronic circuit which interfaces the machine to a power supply or an electrical system; and a controller which measures electrical and mechanical quantities and uses this information to control the power electronic circuitry.

In this course we will cover fundamental electromechanical, power electronic, and control theory in the context of electric drive systems. The capabilities and limitations of different types of electric machines (e.g., permanent magnet, induction) in various drive applications will be covered. MATLAB® Simulink® models will be used throughout the course to give students exposure to the dynamic behavior of these systems.
