Admission information


After successfully passing the module, the students understand the theory and practical application of simulation and commissioning of electrical actuators. The students are able to read and understand wiring diagrams. The students understand contents of models and their theory of operation. Furthermore, the students are able to analyze and to critically question the simulation results and to transfer them to a practical context. Finally, students can compare permanent magnet synchronous machines and induction machines, and know their differences. Indisciplinary, students are able to solve complicated problems in a group, to conclude the results out of different groups, and to analyze and present them appropriately.


Fundamentals on electrical actuators and their operation on a test bench. The following topics are mainly included: 1. Simulation (simulation, parametrization) 2. Control 3. Commissioning of the test bench 4. Comparison between simulation and measurements


Fundamentals on electrical machines, simulation, and control of electrical actuators The following modules are recommended to be successfully passed: - Electrical Machines [EI8028] or Elektrische Maschinen [EI7326]

Teaching and learning methods

The following teaching/learning methods are applied: - individual supervision of students during lab course - Advance organizer - short lecture units - self-studying of theory - discussions between students during lab course - short presentations by students
