Objectives

The course gives specific skills on the design of AC motor drives. Dynamic behaviour of most important AC motor is analysed. Both conventional and advanced control techniques are applied to synchronous and asynchronous motor drives. A complete design example is carried out by a case study. Principles of EMC for electric drives are also illustrated.

Acquired skills

- Understanding the terminology of technical literature.
- Recognising motors and drives performances.
- Knowing guidelines for EMC problems and measurements in electric drives.
- Carring out the design and implementation of an AC motor drive.
- Knowing rules of thumb and pittfalls of a numerical implementation of control algorithms.
- Use of electric drives in main industrial applications.
- Recent applications of ac control in renewable energy sources: photovoltaic and wind generation.
