Electric Machines

Course Code: ELIC 200

Academic Year: 2020-2021

The course begins with the study of electrical power, from generation through distribution to its industrial, commercial and residential supply. An electrical safety and shock hazard awareness session in the laboratory will precede the students' laboratory experiments. Investigative experiments that will give insight into the details of single-phase and three-phase supply will be carried out. Generators and motors will be studied in detail. DC and AC motors as well as stepper motors will be emphasized in both lecture and lab. The course also includes an introduction to electronic controls and interfaces for DC and AC motors. Safety in the work place and in the lab is tested in this course. Students must also pass a safe workplace online test. The mark on this test will be added in as a portion of the lab mark.
