Undergraduate Academic Catalog 2012-2013
ECET 4530 Industrial Motor Control
This introductory design course is a study of manual and automatic, starters and controllers of ac and dc motors. The course will concentrate on three-phase induction motor starters and controllers with some study of dc motor starters and controllers. The induction motor coverage will include both full-voltage and reduced voltage techniques, with the emphasis on the reduced voltage methods. Line impedance, auto-transformer, wye-delta and part-winding starters will be included. The laboratory will consist of several projects in designing, testing and demonstrating various motor starters and controllers. The designs will require using Programmable Logic Controllers in the projects. The course will conclude with variable frequency drives.
