Electrical Machines Control Practicum
Fundamentals of electrical machines control. Experience in the application of frequency converter for AC induction machine and BLDC machine control. Experience in application of industrial software tools for parameter tuning of frequency converters, commissioning of frequency converter for AC induction motor and BLDC motor control, recording and analysis of measured values.
- explain the operating principle of induction motor
- explain the basic principle of AC/DC/AC converter
- distinguish V/f characteristics
- select appropriate V/f control structure with respect to load requirements
- apply industrial software tools to adjust the parameters of frequency converter
- use industrial frequency converter for speed control of induction motor
- solve specific tasks regarding control of induction drive by adapting industrial frequency converter to address particular application
Forms of Teaching
One hour lecture is held each week.Exercises
Exercises are held in the first cycle 4 times for 1 hour.Laboratory Work
Laboratory exercises consist of six exercises, each lasting for 5 hours. Laboratory exercises are conducted on a laboratory model based on industrial frequency converter Siemens Sinamics G120. Two laboratory exercises are held in the first cycle and four in the second cycle.Experiments
The lectures will take place through experimentally commissioning of industrial converter for induction motor control. Voltage and current waveforms of an induction motor powered by a frequency converter are analyzed during motor operation.Consultations
Consultations are arranged via email.Acquisition of Skills
Each student conducts laboratory exercises independently on his laboratory model which qualifies him to independently do commissioning of industrial frequency converters.
