The goal The objective is to provide students with fundamental knowledge regarding the elements of construction, operation and characteristics of induction machines and synchronous machines. The goal is to equip the students with required knowledge for performance analysis of AC machines. Students will gain practical understanding of AC machine operation through laboratory exercises.
The outcome Upon completing the course, students will be able to perform AC machine calculations required in industry (electrical drives), electrical traction (electrical vehicles) and power generation. Additionally, students will be able to perform basic calculations required in the design process of rotating AC machines.
Contents of lectures Induction machines: construction, operating principle. Steady-state equivalent circuit. Parameter calculation. Operating characteristics. Starting and speed regulation. Unbalanced operation. Synchronous machines: construction, operating principle. Steady-state model, parameter calculation. Blondel diagram. Power-angle characteristic. Current diagram. Synchronization and parallel operation.
Contents of exercises Mandatory laboratory exercises: Induction machines: starting of an induction motor, no-load and locked-rotor tests, operating characteristics. Synchronous machines: open-circuit and short-circuit tests, synchronization, active and reactive power regulation, operating characteristics.
