Introduction to closed loop control of DC and AC electrical drives. Understanding of various control techniques. Design of electric drive controllers. Controller synthesis with an objective to obtain optimal process response.
After completing the course, the students are expected to: 1. Know the essential control principles of most common electric drives. 2. Define control algorithm of an electric drive based on a requirement specification and assure the safe operation of the system. 3. Make a dynamic model of electric drive system including a simple mechanical system and a simple model of a power electronic converter. 4. Use synthesis methods for tuning of linear controllers. 5. Optimize the adjustment of the controllers in the cascade control system with an objective to obtain optimal process response. 6. Make measurements to analyze electrical machines and drives operation.
