Year of study, semester 4 (7)
Number of ECTS credits 5
Language of study English
Department Department of Electromechanical Systems Automation and Electrical Drives
Assumed knowledge and prerequisites English В2,  knowledge of electric drive control, electric drive theory, automatic control theory, electric machines, theoretical foundations of electrical engineering
The scope of the course The discipline studies the features of mathematical modeling of electromechanical systems based on electric machines of different types. To do this, modeling programs are developed to control a DC motor, an induction motor, and a synchronous motor with permanent magnets. The features of the control systems for DC and AC motors using different control algorithms are studied by simulations. Simulation of power electronics, rectifiers and voltage converters are also considered.
Rationale Research by mathematical modeling is a mandatory step in the design, development, modernization of electromechanical systems, as it allows without the use of expensive physical equipment to verify the correctness of technical decisions, identify important performance characteristics, identify shortcomings and potentially dangerous modes without harming the electromechanical system and technological equipment in which it is used.
