 Electrical Drive Technology  Assignment
Learning outcomes
 Determine the influence of voltages and frequencies on magnetic behaviour for each component, as well as magnetic losses.
 Determine the parameters of transformers and draw vector diagrams for transformer circuits.
 Determine parameters of directcurrent machines with a shunt or series field using a given torque/speed curve, as well as draw the torque/speed curve from given parameters.
 Determine the point of operation of synchronous machines in a static situation, using given parameters, as well as determine parameters from measurements.
 For asynchronous machines, determine the relationship between given parameters in an equivalentcircuit diagram and the torque/speed curve.
 For asynchronous machines, interpret torque/speed curves regarding starting, stopping, controlling speed combined with given load curves of machines.
