Electric Motors

Course Code: MENG 3010

Academic Year: 2023-2024

Students learn the principal operation of linear and rotary actuators including brushed/brushless DC stepper, servo, single-phase, 3-phase synchronous and induction motors. The course provides basic knowledge including torque, current, voltage, frequency, efficiency, standard codes, and safety precautions of the industrial motors. The concept of motor control techniques such as pulse width modulation, variable frequency drives is included. By the end of this course students should be able to size and select the electrical motors for different types of loading and applications.
