Mechanical Engineering

This course provides the student with an understanding of the operational characteristics of common electrical machines in the electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering industry (dc, ac induction and synchronous motors). Both theoretical and practical characteristics are covered including, principles and structure of dc machines - constructional details, commutation effects, principles and structure of induction motors, principles and structure of synchronous motors


The basic idea of the course is to provide the student sufficient information of electrical machines in the industry i.e., electrical, electronics and mechanical etc.


• To have the elementary knowledge of design of various electrical motors and generators for AC and DC signals.


Learning Outcomes:

At the end of this course, students will be able to:

• Define the need of electrical machines in various engineering streams viz. Electronic Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, etc.

• Enhance their capabilities to get employment in various challenging core and allied industries.

• Apply the constructional details of electrical motors and generators for designing purposes and industrial production and application.


To familiarize the constructional details, the principle of operation of electrical machines, specifically, DC machines and AC motors
