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.

Outline Of Syllabus

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.
