ECE 50900 - Advanced Electric Drives

Prerequisite(s): ECE 42600  FOR LEVEL UG WITH MIN. GRADE OF C-

Credit Hours: 3.00. This course covers topics related to advanced methods for DC and AC electric drives control systems. The emphasis is on AC drives vector control techniques that are used when high performances are required to control torque, acceleration, speed and position: hybrid and electric vehicles, wind-electric energy generation, industrial robots, biomedical application, etc. Simulink-MATLAB based computer models are used to study the vector control of induction and synchronous AC machines, and real-time simulations are performed using dSPACE prototyping tool. The course is aimed primarily to ECE graduate students specializing in electric drives, power electronics and power systems area. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
