OverviewThis course introduces the theory of magnetic circuits, transformers and electromagnetic energy conversion and applies these fundamental principles to systems which rely on them. Topics considered may include three phase circuits, magnetic circuits, transformers, electromechanical energy conversion, transmission lines, introductory electric machines and power systems.LEARNING OUTCOMES1. Identify the theory necessary to analyse magnetic circuits2. Recognise the principles of electromagnetic energy conversion;3. Apply the fundamental theories to the operating principles of and to model: a. Transformers; b. Rotating machines; c. Relays and solenoids; d. Transmission lines.4. Interpret AC circuit theory in relation to three phase circuits in steady state, balanced and unbalanced;5. Recognise the nature of power losses in major elements of an electromagnetic system6. Combine elements into a complete system and perform elementary analysis of the system as a whole;7. Perform power and efficiency calculations for major components of the electromagnetic system and for the system as a whole;8. Identify and adopt safe practices when working with electric systems containing energy conversion elements.CONTENTThree phase circuitsBalanced and unbalanced circuitsPowerMagnetic circuitsMagnetic fieldsMMFMagnetic fluxB-H characteristicsTransformersElectromechanical energy conversionEnergy stored in a magnetic fieldInductanceElectromagnetic forceElementary concepts in rotating machinesElectromagnetic actuatorsRelaysSolenoidsTransmission Line ModellingSingle phase transmission linesThree Phase transmission linesTransmission Line RepresentationPower System RepresentationPer Unit SystemAnalysis
