This course will focus on the fundamentals of rotating electrical equipment. This will include AC and DC motors and generators. Starting with the basic theories required and finishing up with some example problems. Starting with a simple liner DC machine the course takes you through rotating DC motors and generators, Induction motors and finishing with synchronous motors and generators. You will find several examples of sample problems with the final chapter dedicated to just that.
Upon completion of this course, the student will have a working knowledge of DC motors and generators including the commutation elopements. This includes three-phase and single-phase induction motors and how synchronous generators work alone and connector to large systems such as the North American Grid.
The requirements going into this course are a basic understanding of electrical circuits such as Ohm’s law & Kirchhoff’s law and working knowledge of mathematics including equations. However, every effort has been made to keep the calculations as simple as possible complete with detailed explanations related to all calculations. The student will find the videos crisp, clean and very detailed with all text typed not handwritten and illustrations crafted in Keynote or PowerPoint illustrations that use animation to carry the ideas across.
This course is intended both for the novice as well as a review for those who have previously studied the subject matter.
