The chief objective of Energy Conversion courses continues to be to build a strong foundation in the basic principles of Electro-mechanics and Electric Machinery. The emphasis of the courses has been on both physical and analytical techniques. In many institutes around the world, two semester courses in energy conversion and a laboratory are necessary to conform to the constraints of an electrical engineering undergraduate core curriculum. The courses should be of sufficient depth to provide basis for understanding many real-world electric-machinery applications and to satisfy the needs of those students who pursue specialization in other than power area. Concurrently, mastery of the material covered in the courses and the laboratory should prepare individuals in the electric power area with adequate prerequisite foundation for proceeding on to elective undergraduate and more advanced graduate courses in power systems, and electric machinery design and control.
