Aims/Description: Energy transformation, the conversion of energy from one form to another, is a core aspect of engineering. For example, motor vehicles take chemical energy and transform to mechanical energy. Building on students┐ knowledge of fundamental electrical engineering, this unit provides an introduction to the energy transformation that can be accomplished through electrical and magnetic means. Electrical machines, magnetic transformers and power electronic converters are the core topics. Important related topics are also explored including an overview of energy distribution. A successful student will also appreciate how electromechanical energy transformation can be relevant to many traditionally non-electrical disciplines.
