Electric Machines, Drives, and Automation is a multidisciplinary field dealing with electrical machines, power electronics, control of electrical drives, mechatronics, and industrial automation.
Through the theoretical knowledge acquired and numerous laboratory exercises, matriculated profile students acquire the practical experience necessary to solve complex engineering problems in the following areas independently:
- design and testing of electric motors, generators, transformers, and power electronics devices,
- control of electrical machines using microcontrollers,
- design of drives for electric cars and rail vehicles,
- control of vehicle dynamics,
- modeling and design of complex mechatronic systems,
- programming and commissioning of automated industrial systems using programmable logic controllers,
- programming of process control systems.
Engineers of the profile Electrical Machines, Drives, and Automation are trained for all industries that include power systems, industrial automation (automotive, gas, oil, pharmaceutical, etc.), electric vehicles, mechatronic systems, industrial equipment design, development, and testing of power converters, electric motors, generators, and transformers.
