Syllabus
Prerequisites: It is neccesary to know basis of Electrotechnique and Electrical Machines theory.
Target skills and knowledge: Specialist knowledge of Aerospace Engineering of Electrical Drives.
Acquisition of skills in the field of electrical machines and drives.
Knowledge of the principle of operation of the electro-mechanical systems, the selection criteria and methods of use thereof.
Particular attention will be devoted to some specific issues such as the choice of the optimal mechanical reducer thermal disposal, fault tolerance (fault tolerance), high performance, etc..
Examination methods: Traditional
Assessment criteria: written and oral esam
Course unit contents: Basic concepts of electromechanical energy conversion.
Main electrical machinery: DC motor, induction motor, synchronous machine.
Classification, design criteria, problems. Engines with very high dynamics.
Power electronics: electronic components, static converters, rectifiers uncontrolled and controlled, chopper, inverter, PWM modulation techniques.
Criteria for choosing motors and drives: load characteristics, identification of the mechanical characteristics of the machines most appropriate choice of the type of drive and control.
Sizing criteria, calculating magnetic loss calculations, thermal calculation and thermal network.
Outline of project drive with speed control and position for certain types of electric motor, the block diagram of the system, the choice of the regulator.
Solutions of electric motors and electric converters redundant likely to present a high fault tolerance to temporary or permanent (fault-tolerant).
PRACTICAL ACTIVITY IN LABORATORY: development of low power electromechanical systems (e.g., robots, controlled actuators).
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures with help of blackboard.
Exercises.
LAB:
Practical experiences with the use of the microcontroller.
Electrical drive feeding DC motors and stepper motors.
