Sponsor E-mail Address:
provide a provisional syllabus for new courses and courses in which
changes in content and/or description and/or credits are proposed that
include the following information: course goals and description;
format/structure of the course (proposed number of instructor contact
hours per week, student workload effort per week, etc.); topics to be
covered; scope and nature of assigned readings (texts, authors,
frequency, amount per week); required course assignments; nature of any
student projects; and how students will be evaluated.
The University policy on credits is found under Section 4A of "Standards for Semester Conversion" at http://www.fpd.finop.umn.edu/groups/senate/documents/policy/semestercon.html .

New: Proposal to Change the Title and Content of EE 5705

New Proposed Title: Electric Drives in Renewables and Electric/Hybrid Vehicles
Catalog Description: (3cr)
Role of electric drives in wind-electric systems, inertial storage, electric/hybrid vehicles, variable-speed drives for energy conservation, etc. Controlling ac machines for energy-efficient operation using d-q axis modeling. vector-controlled and direct-torque-controlled induction motor drives, permanent-magnet and interior-permanent magnet ac motor drives; sensor-less drives; voltage space-vector modulation techniques. Integrated simulations.
Contact Hours: 3hrs/wk
So far in EE 5705, Advanced Electric Drives: Analysis, Control and Modeling using Simulink, (publisher website: www.mnpere.com) has been used. It has been given to students at no cost. I plan to revise this book, prior to Spring 2010, to reflect the new course emphasis.
Prerequisite by Topics:
Understanding of transformers, dc drives and ac machines and drives under balanced sinusoidal steady state.
This course teaches modern topics in sustainable technologies for optimum operation of electric drives, leading to their analysis, control and modeling using a program such as SIMULINK™.
A comprehensive understanding of how electric drives operate under dynamic conditions, how they ought to be controlled for optimum performance and how they are modeled using a computer simulation program as a first step in hardware implementation of their control.
It is possible that a separate 1-credit hardware lab course can be added to complement this lecture course EE 5705. This lab can basically be an extension of the lab courses EE 4703 that uses DSP-controlled (dSPACE system) Electric Drives.
