Fall 2013 -- ECEN 3170 -- Energy Conversion 1
Instructor: Harry Hilgers
Brief review of phasors, real and reactive power in single phase circuits, power triangle, balanced three-phase circuits, wye and delta connections, introduction to electro-magnetic machines, transformers (single and three-phase) and their equivalent circuits, AC-machinery fundamentals, forces/torques of electric machines, synchronous generator from a magnetic field point of view (equivalent circuit, phasor diagram, power-flow, stability, operating alone, operating on an infinite bus, house diagram, transients), synchronous motors (starting, damper windings, stability) and condensers, three-phase induction motors (equivalent circuit, torque-speed curves derived from a magnetic field point of view and from the equivalent circuit point of view, NEMA A, B, C, D designs, power-flow, starting in-rush, speed control methods), DC machinery fundamentals (internal generated voltage and torque, commutation, power-flow), DC motors (separately excited, series and shunt excited, torque curves) , single phase motors (universal motors, two-phase motors, split-phase start, capacitor start, permanent-split capacitor start, capacitor-start/run). Uses Matlab and Simulink. Course details will be on D2L.
