Students will learn about the basic principles of electric motors, the functions of direct current motors (DC motors) and alternating current motors (AC motors). Adjustable drives and control system engineering are also discussed. The aim of the course is to give students a general idea of electric motors as an integral part of automation engineering. Upon completion of the course, students will know how to choose the correct electrical drives and connect them to an electrical network.
A total of 128 hours classroom education, which includes 64 hours of laboratory exercises. 64 hours of self-study.
