EEE 331 – Electrical Machines I Rationale: Electrical machines permeate many fabrics of modern daily life in the conversion of power to the useful mechanical form for industrial and domestic applications. Electrical machines are also useful for the conversion of various types of raw power, in the form of hydropower and fossil-base types, to the more convenient and more easily transmittable form of electrical power. Although electrical machine theory and analysis has evolved over the last 30 years, this course emphasizes on tested analytical techniques to treat well-established traditional electrical machines that have survived applications in the wake of new power conditioning apparatus. The course also sets the scene for the advanced and modern analytical approach in an advanced course in the programme. Course Content: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
