Synopsis

The unit begins by considering electrical machines, looking at DC machines, induction motors, synchronous motors and other types of motors under fixed and variable speed operation. Then thyristor rectifiers and switched power converters are presented, looking at their use for electrical energy conversion in general and variable speed motor control in particular. Finally, single and three phase AC networks, power factor correction, and electrical power generation, transmission and distribution networks are explored. Particular focus is given here to three phase transformers, transmission line modelling, quality of electrical supply, electrical protection systems, and power system control.

Objectives

To explore electrical power equipment, apparatus and systems. To understand the conversion of electrical energy into alternative forms for different load requirements. To understand electrical power generation, transmission and distribution systems.

Assessment

Continuous assessment: 30%
