Course Project and Presentation “Electrical Machines Project”

General Information:

In this course, each group has to submit an independent study report in PDF format (no more than 20 pages) along with a PowerPoint presentation in PPT format (no more than 4 slides per student). Other than the cover page, each page in your reports and each slide in your PowerPoint should be numbered on the lower right corner as (Page#/Total number of pages or slides). This course project is worth 20% of the total course grade. For this report, I have split the class into 5 groups and each group will investigate one topic as follows:

Project #1: Vector control for Interior Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor

Project #2: Controlling the wound-rotor induction motor by external resistors

Project #3: Synchronous generators operated in parallel and with infinitive bus

Project #4: Controlling the induction motor speed by V/f method

Project #5: Soft starting control for induction motor

The weight of your project is totally 20% of the final mark of the course distributed as follows:

Technical Report:                             10% Marks (Group grade)

Presentation and QA section:           10% Marks (Individual grade)
