Postponed: An Introduction to Electrial Machines

24th March 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


This event has been postponed – a new date will be circulated in due course.

Internal Training Event: An Introduction to Electrical Machines
Date: TBC
Time: 10am – 4pm
Location: University of Sheffield.

This one-day course is intended to provide an introduction to electrical machines, as is suitable for people with a technical background but who have little or no specific background knowledge in machines. Although starting from an introductory level, there will be sufficient content at an intermediate level to be of value to participants with some background in electrical machines.
Course description: Starting from the basics of electrical machines, including aspects such as the anatomy, construction and fundamental operating principles, the course will develop and understanding of the operation of different types of machines (induction, DC, permanent magnet, wound-field synchronous and reluctance machines). The course will cover loss mechanisms and thermal behaviour in machines. Although the course will not cover design methodologies per se, the various electrical / thermal / mechanical / manufacturing trade-offs will be discussed and illustrated via case studies. The course will touch on the role of power converters in terms of their basic functionality as viewed from a machine perspective.

This is an internal event, open to our hub partners. If you are interested in attending please contact Hub Manager on L.okeefe@sheffield.ac.ukĀ
