Problem based project oriented project work in groups. The project takes its base in an electric actuator that is used to drive a mechanical load. The actuator may be a poly-phase AC machine or another kind of electro-mechanical device. The actuator must be fed from a hard or soft-switched power electronic converter and closed-loop control principles must be adopted. The whole power transmission system must be analysed. Selected parts of the system may be developed and realized in the project. This may also include development of a power electronic converter, a digital control system or interfacing circuitry. Requirements to control strategies for the converter and the actuator must be formulated. Suitable modulation methods and controllers must be analysed, designed, simulated and evaluated. Laboratory implementation and tests of the whole system or selected parts of it must be conducted and evaluated.
Since it is a 15 ECTS project module, the work load is expected to be 450 hours for the student
