ECET 4560 Electric Drives

Prerequisite: ECET 3500, and ECET 4610


This course covers basic AC/DC electric-machine drives for speed/position control. It presents an integrated discussion of electric machines, power electronics, and control systems. Computer simulations are used for understanding power-electronics based converters and the design of feedback controllers. Applications of electric drives can be found in electric transportation, robotics, process control, and energy conservation.
