Power-Electronic Converter and Control for Electric Machines: Theory and Practice This course will introduce modeling, analysis, and design of electromechanical energy conversion systems from a simultaneous perspective of power electronics, electromechanics, and control. We will take a hands-on approach. Theories will be discussed in lectures and will be implemented in real-world laboratory setups. Three-phase power-electronic converters will be introduced that are specifically designed for machine drives. Dynamic models of different types of electrical machines will be developed using generalized theory of machines. Finally, different control architectures and their impact on the dynamic performance of the drive will be discussed. ?Real-world? examples from many existing and emerging applications including electric vehicles, renewable energy systems, and high-power and high-performance industrial drives will be used to show the need for interdisciplinary understanding from a syste
