The electronics industry is rapidly developing towards cheaper, faster and lighter systems. Besides the changes in communications technology in society, this development also involves larger electronic devices and systems: in recent years power electronics have become considerably cheaper, smaller and more reliable. Modern drive systems enable higher energy efficiency of the drive systems themselves and of the processes in which drive systems are used.
In the course ‘Introduction to Electric Drive Systems’ you will acquire basic knowledge of contemporary electric drive systems and you will learn how they can be applied and operated in practice.
- You will learn about the basic principles of electrical drives, their components, the devices they drive, typical load curves and therefore the characteristics that are important for selecting and operating such drives.
- You will learn about operation of drives on a fixed-frequency power supply and with variable-speed drives.
- You will learn more about related topics such as two-axis theory, basic control structures and relevant sections of standards.
- You will solve up-to-date problems from the subject area based on examples.
- You will be perfectly prepared to apply electrical drives in practice.
The course is designed for people who are graduates of a Higher Technical Institute (HTL) or have an engineering degree, who wish to learn about electrical drive systems.
Tp participate in this course you must be a graduate of a Higher Technical Institute (HTL) or hold a degree in engineering from a university or third-level college.
