DescriptionThis is an introductory module dealing with the area of electrical power systems and electromechanical energy conversion. The concept of electromechanical energy conversion and mechanical performance of common motors is analysed using torque–speed characteristics and rating plate information. The module introduces the concepts and techniques required for the analysis of three-phase power systems. The equivalent circuit technique is used in the performance analysis of single-phase transformers and machines.A brief description of the module.
