Aims/Description: This module introduces the concepts and analytical tools for predicting the behaviour of electric components and combinations of electric components. Electromechanical energy conversion such as drives, servo systems and actuator technologies are also introduced. This module will equip students with the ability to create models that describe the circuit components or groups of components to allow predictions of performance to be made for Aerospace Engineering applications.

Restrictions on availability: A levels or equivalent.
