Aims/Description: This module will introduce students static electric and magnetic fields, Maxwell's equations and the application of these equations to electro- and magento-static field problems. This will be extended to consider low frequency time-varying fields and the magnetic field calculations necessary to analyse rotating electrical machines. There will also be a consideration of the numerical methods used to solve magnetic field problems. These ideas will then underpin the second half of the module that will concentrate on the design of electrical machines, considering rating, windings and magnets.
