Course Outline :
This training aims to update knowledge on rotating electrical machines and to refresh background on magnetism. It is dedicated for Technicians & Engineers in research department, electronics and mechanical engineer who would like to refresh or to have training on “rotating electrical machines”. During this training we will see across FluxMotor basic laws of electromagnetism, description of rotating electrical machines, Magnetic materials, losses in magnetic circuits, sizing elements of Brushless DC Machine, electrical circuits & Windings of rotating electrical machines, magneto motive force & Park Model. The training will be ended with an Example of design of BLDC machine from scratch
