This section shows main aspects of the module ELB045 Electrical Power and Machines.

The aims of this module are:

(1) To give students a basic understanding of electrical technology as used in mechanical engineering applications.

(2) To introduce electrical machines and power systems and their practical applications, supported by practical analysis/synthesis methods of sufficient mathematical depth.

(1) To give students a basic understanding of electrical technology as used in mechanical engineering applications.

(2) To introduce electrical machines and power systems and their practical applications, supported by practical analysis/synthesis methods of sufficient mathematical depth.

At the end of the module the student should be able to:

Analyse ac circuits using complex numbers, and be able to use phasor diagrams in the analysis of ac power

circuits. and the analysis of three phase circuits. Understand how the transformers, induction motors,

synchronous generators and dc motors work and be able to use them in industrial applications.

Analyse complex electrical networks (ac and dc), and predict the performance of electrical machines. This ability

is fundamental for the students with mechanical engineering background, to be able to handle electromechanical

problems encountered in real life situations.

Test a single phase transformer to determine its equivalent circuit parameters and compare the theoretical results

with practical results under load conditions. Know the safety precautions that need to be taken into account when

testing electrical plant and equipment.

- Test electrical plant equipment (transformers, motors, generators).

- Apply methods of ac circuit analysis to other more complex networks.
