Power electronic converters and electrical machines are the key components for the realisation of the more electric aircraft (MEA), hybrid electric aircraft (HEA), and electric propulsion aircraft. In the MEA, mechanical actuators are replaced by electrical actuators whereas, in hybrid and all-electric applications, electrical motors provide thrust to the airplane.
This course will explain the modelling and control of the electrical machines and their associated power electronic converters used for aircraft applications, including DC machines, brushless DC motors, induction machines, permanent magnet synchronous machines, and variable reluctance machines (switched and synchronous).
The attendees will acquire advanced knowledge of machine modelling and drive control for aerospace applications. The attendees will gain a solid understanding of the main techniques for motors and generators driven by power electronic converters using a variety of electrical machines currently employed for aircraft.
