# IE 140 - AC/DC Machines

Credit Hours: 3

Topics include: review of AC voltage and current phase relationship and computations of reactance and power; transformers and transformer applications; introduction to generators and motors; single-phase motors; three-phase alternators and motors; DC motors and generators and AC and DC motor control fundamentals. Experiments include: AC phasor computations, single-phase transformers, three-phase wye and delta connected transformers, single-phase AC motor characteristics, three-phase alternators, three-phase motors, DC motor and generator characteristics, simple motor starter and control circuits.

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

• relate fundamental laws governing electrical machines;
• identify the operational differences between various DC motors and generator systems;
• identify and describe various three-phase motor systems;
• understand the operation and application of three-phase induction and synchronous motors;
• describe the difference between single and three-phase motors;
• understand the operation and usage of power transformers;
• understand the operation and usage of motor control;
• reinforce theoretical concepts by applying them to actual machines;
• identify the characteristic differences between various DC motors and generator systems; and
• identify and describe operating characteristics of various three-phase motor systems.
