Electric Machines in Modern Day Energy Systems

Course Dates: August 11 & 12, 2017

Electric Machines in Modern Day Energy Systems is one of five courses in the Smart Power program. This course will cover the basics of rotating machines. The relationships between mechanical energy, magnetic energy and electrical energy associated with rotating machines and how these relate to the steady state operating characteristics will be presented. Application of generators and motors in electric power systems will be discussed. Machine control and variable speed operation of rotating electric machines will also be covered.

Two-day course outline:

  1. Electromechanical energy conversion in electric machines.
  2. Electric machine topologies and characteristics: synchronous, induction, permanent magnet, and combinations of these.
  3. Variable speed control of electric machines: application examples and energy efficiency advantages.
  4. Application considerations.
  5. Future trends in electric machine development.


This course is taught by The Ohio State University College of Engineering and the Electrical and Computer Science department faculty.
