A motor is an electro-mechanical device that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy. The very basic principle of functioning of an electrical motor lies on the fact that force is experienced in the direction perpendicular to magnetic field and the current, when field and current are made to interact with each other. Different types of motors have been developed for specific purposes. This course is designed to help students to become familiar with the basic theory, characteristics, construction, operation and application of rotating electrical machines. It includes the direct current motors, synchronous motors and variable speed drives. After completing this course, students will have practical knowledge on how to safely wire and operate electrical rotating machines and their associated metering and starting equipment.
