Design of Electric Motors, Generators, and Drive Systems

Monday, June 7, 2021 8:00 AM - Friday, June 11, 2021 5:00 PM (EDT)


This course focuses on the analysis and design of electric motors, generators, and drive systems, placing special emphasis on the design of machines for electric drives, including traction drives, drive motors for automated manufacturing (robots), material handling and drive motors for automotive, aircraft and marine propulsion systems. Participants will gain extensive hands-on exposure through computer-based laboratory exercises using MATLAB and a hardware build session in our instructional laboratories. Learn more:
