Description and contextualization of the subject

Offshore renewable energy technologies have gone through significant developments and improvements in the electrical energy conversion systems, namely the generators and the power electronic interfaces that enable the integration of these generation sources to the power grid. This subject focuses on the fundamentals of operation of typical generators, semiconductors and converter types.

The objectives are to provide students with¿

1. Understanding the operating principles of common AC and DC machines (torque and back-emf production in DC machines, torque production in induction motors, and the derivation of the induction motor equivalent circuit).

2. Learn design principles of rotating electrical machines.

3. Familiarise with two-axis model of AC machines (origin of the two-axis model, and stationary and synchronous reference frames)

4. Learn the dynamic models of AC and DC machines
