This course is an introductory course into power engineering and enables the students to analyze, model, and predict the performance of power devices and systems including single-phase and balanced three-phase systems, transformers, generators, and motors. This course presents how to use fundamentals of electromagnetism and analyze the equivalent electric circuit, to derive and apply the relevant equations of electric AC machines including motors and generators, to derive and apply the relevant equations of three-phase machines including motors and generators.
This course is about analysis, simulation and design of high-power converters and their applications in power systems. Main topics include: high-power multi-pulse rectifiers, multilevel voltage and current source converters, pulse width modulation, harmonic reduction techniques, modelling and simulation techniques, and industrial applications. This course presents topics including the converter topologies, operating principles, modulation techniques and control of a variety of high-power converters with a voltage rating of a few kilovolts and power rating in the megawatt range.
