ECE 598 KSH - Special Topics in ECE - Topics in Electromechanics
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in electrical and computer engineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
Technologies like advanced materials, new manufacturing processes and power electronics can open up the design space for new electrical machines in the transportation, energy, and industrial sector. To take full advantage of these developments, engineers need to have a good understanding of the complex trade-offs encountered in electric machine design that span multiple disciplines. They must also be comfortable with both analytical and numerical tools, and how to effectively apply these to obtain the best results. This course will attempt to prepare engineers for this opportunity by focusing on practical design considerations in electric machines. Fundamental principles of energy conversion are first reviewed. Basic design rules, analytical formulae and the use of numerical design tools will then be introduced, and experience will be gained through a hands-on design project. Prerequisite: ECE 431.
