Prerequisite
1. DC Machines &Transformers (2130904)
2. AC Machines (2140906)
3. Industrial Drives & Control - I (2162404)
4. Industrial Drives & Control - II (2172402)
Rationale
Conventional rotating electrical machine like direct current machine, induction machine and synchronous machines are mainly used for bulk energy conversion. There are other types of electrical machine such as stepper motor, switched reluctance motor, permanent magnet DC and AC motors, brushless DC motor, linear electric machine, permanent magnet axial flux machine. With rapid developments in semiconductor technology and digital control systems, during past few decades, the implementation of fast and accurate control schemes could be realized. At present large number of institutions and industries are actively involved in research for further improvement in construction and performance of special electrical machine. This subject enables the students to develop the understanding of Brushless DC Machines & Stepper Motors. Understand the concept of Switched Reluctance Motor & Linear Induction Machines and permanent magnet DC & AC or PMSM motor.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.
After learning the course, the students should be able to:
At the end of the course students will be able to understand
1. Principles of electro-mechanics in detail.
2. Analytical techniques for electric machinery
3. Synchronous, induction, DC, variable-reluctance and stepper motors
4. Single- and two-phase motors

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
