Course Information

Description

Laboratory experiments based on principles of electric power engineering

Why take this course?

This course provides the students with the practical aspects of power related equipment, connections, operation and measurement.

Learning Objectives

  • develop models of transformers, motors, and transmission lines from experimental data,
  • apply models to predict the physical outcome of the experiments,
  • evaluate the models to demonstrate conditions beyond the limitation of the lab, and
  • measure real and reactive power in single- and three-phase circuits.
