EL 207 - Lab for EL 206

Credit Hours: 1.5

This laboratory course will provide hands-on experience with motor/generator/transformer circuits and will include the following topics: transformer turns ratio; Edison system; autotransformer; transformer polarity test and short and open circuit tests; transformer loading characteristics; DC generator operating characteristics; shunt, series, and compound DC motor characteristics; dynamic braking; AC three phase induction motor operating characteristic; variable speed drives; stepper motors.

Course Outcomes
At the completion of the course, the student should be able to:

  • develop and identify various types of transformer operations;
  • determine the characteristic of a practical transformer under loaded and unloaded operations;
  • relate fundamental laws governing electrical machine operations;
  • identify the characteristic differences between various DC motors and generator systems;
  • identify and describe the characteristic of the 3-phase induction motor;
  • use a variable speed control for 3-phase motors; and
  • identify and describe the characteristic of the stepper motor.
