This course deals with the development of mathematical models for electrical machines, suitable for transient analysis of machine performance. The course covers the following topics.

Basics of magnetic circuits - flux, mmf, reluctance - self, leakage, magnetizing and mutual inductances.

Analysis of magnetic circuits with airgap and permanent magnets.

Analysis of singly excited electromechanical system with linear magnetics - nonlinear magnetics using energy and co-energy principles. Derivation of force from co-energy.

Inductances of distributed windings - salient pole, cyclindrical rotor.

Analysis of the doubly excited rotational system with two coils on stator and two on rotor - electrical and mechanical equations.

Reference frames - stator attached alpha-beta, synchronous reference frame, arbitrary speed reference frame - power invariance and non-power invariance.

Derivation of dc machine systems from the generalized machine - electrical and mechanical equations.

Analysis of induction machine - synchronous reference frame - with currents as variables - with rotor flux as variables - basis for vector control - small signal modelling of induction machine.

Analysis of the alternator - synchronous reference frame - derivation of salient and cylindrical rotor machine phasor diagrams - three phase short circuit of alternator and various time constants.
