ELE-3608 Advanced Electric Drives - 5 ECTS
A relevant undergraduate Bachelor degree in Engineering program in power electronics and electrical machines. Basic knowledge in power systems is also an advantage.
In addition, the following requirements must be met:
- minimum 25 credits in mathematics (equivalent to Mathematical Methods 1, 2 og 3), 5 credits in statistics and 7,5 ects i physics on a higher level is required.
Application code: 9371
The course will describe the design, operation, and control of advanced electric drives by the use of power electronic converters.The emphasis is on control algorithms and dynamic operating characteristics of electrical machines. Electric transportation (vehicles, ships, aircrafts) will be used as application of electric drives throughout the course. Laboratory experiments is a central and integrated part of the course.
- Load modelling of mechanical and electric systems
- Dynamic operating characteristics
- Induction machines, PMSM, BLDC and reluctance machines
- Advanced control strategies of AC drives based on vector control and direct torque control.
- Regenerative motor drives
- Sensorless control
