ECSE 4120 - Electromechanics

This course studies electromechanical interactions in lumped-parameter systems. These interactions describe the operation of electric machines, electromechanical actuators, and transducers. The fundamental laws of Faraday, Ampere, and Gauss are considered to develop physical models of magnetic circuits, including those which use permanent magnets. These models are then expanded to include equations of motion and the thermodynamics of electromechanical coupling. Applications include transformers, induction machines, synchronous machines, DC machines, and reluctance machines.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: ECSE 2110.

When Offered: Spring term annually.

Credit Hours: 3
