MODULE DESCRIPTION

Required pre-requisite: Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I for Mechanical Engineers

This course, together with "Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering I for Mechanical Engineers" conveys all of the fundamentals in electrical engineering relevant to a mechanical engineering program.

After successfully completing this course ...

  • You will know all the important parameters for characterizing magnetic fields, will be familiar with the magnetic properties of materials, will be able to draw field lines for certain geometries and will be able to calculate simple fields;
  • You will know about the interactions between magnetic and electric fields and be knowledgeable about the fundamental principals in electromagnetic energy conversion;
  • You will know the important types of electric drive machines as well as their forms and structure; you will know their areas of application and be able to interpret rating plates; Further, you will know the most important materials used and their application limits;
  • You will be able to explain the functional principles for the examples of induction and synchronous machines and will be able to display their operating behaviors and limits with equivalent circuit diagrams; Furthermore, you will have an overview of parasitic effects (noise generation, bearing stress) and transient properties;Y
  • ou will know about cooling concepts and machine protection and have an overview of drive control and especially speed controllers;
  • You will know the possible causes of power outages and be able to evaluate the risk potential of dangerous currents, and will understand the most important concepts for preventing shocks in TT- and TN-S Systems.
