This course covers electromechanical systems, their terminology, and how the components function together. It examines the magnetic and electromagnetic properties of dc motor components, motor operation and classification, the creation of mechanical energy by ac motors and how electromagnetism and induction produce rotation. It discusses methods for stopping motors, the components of a brushless servo motor, and speed torque curves. It concludes with coverage of output power, the control section, and I/O servo drives.
