|Semester 1 Credit Value:||15|
Electrical/Electronic Engineering first degree or other equivalent qualification
To enable the student to gain practical experience in the design, simulation, construction and testing of an electrical drive system. The student will develop experimental skills through the measurement, analysis and verification of results and the findings will be communicated in a technical report.
1. Research electrical drive technology.
2. Design and simulate an electric drive system.
3. Construction of an electric drive.
4. Experimental test, analysis and verification of the system
5. Production of a written technical report.
An understanding of the principles of electrical drives and the control of an electrical motor. To prepare the student for their individual project in semesters 2 and 3 through a structured project entailing the design, simulation, construction, testing, evaluation and verification of an electric drive system.
- Time and project resource management.
- Research skills and information acquisition
- Computer aided design.
- Electrical system construction.

This module will bring together material covered in the MSc lecture programme in a practical setting. This structured project work will ensure all students on the MSc course take part in practical activity involving design, simulation, construction, testing, analysis and evaluation (not all aspects are necessarily covered in the individual project).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Practical/lab report||1||M||50||Project milestones of equal weighting (weeks 4, 8 and 12)|
|Report||1||M||50||8 pages to include diagrams, soppe traces and graphs|
Project milestones enable the student to demonstrate suitable progression through the project. The written report will enable the student to demonstrate their ability to produce a technical document.
