**Course
Description:**

This course is for both graduate and undergraduate students. Part 1 materials
are required for all students. Part II is required for graduate students.

Part 1: Examines
power electronic for motor control. Two types of power electronic converters,
voltage fed and current red converters, along with variety of switching schemes
will be examined. AC motor control objectives and realization through power
electronic converters will be discussed and validated through PSCAD based
circuit simulation.

Part 2: Examines
dynamic models for electric machines; Examines machine variable transformation
through abc-dq transformation; Examine space vector
concepts; Examine field oriented control for ac motors; system analysis and
control design using multi-variable system analysis in both state-space and
frequency domains; optimal control through dynamic programming and convex
optimization.

**Assignments:**

Course assignments and graded materials will include approximately 5 homework
projects, a mid-term examination, and a final project. Each of these counts approximately 1/3
toward the final grade. Homework
projects involve analysis, problem solving, and simulation. PSCAD, Matlab/SimPowerSystems are suggested circuit-based simulation
tools. Matlab is suggested for mathematical modeling.
