ECE 538

Renewable Energies

Instructor: Dr. Mahesh Krishnamurthy

Course Outline: Fundamentals of energy conversion will be discussed, which are the foundation of efficient design and operation of motors & generators in modern day automotive, domestic and renewable energy systems. It will further investigate application-based principles of structural assessment, electromagnetic analysis, dimensional and thermal constraints for different machines and motor drives. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software and Matlab-based design projects will be used using to model the performance and operation of electric machines.
