I would like to suggest that for the class test on Monday, people should arrive not later than 11h20. This makes it possible to finish writing by 12h25 as there is another class using the lecture hall immediately after.
For next weeks practical assignment, you can remain in the same groups as for the first assignment.
There will be a second class test on Monday the 20th of May. It will be based on Induction motor drives
The PWM ICs needed to build the modulator are now available. Arrange to collect them from Louis Wabeke as soon as possible. Groups of not more than three people should be formed and a group representative to go sign for the IC.
Louis is available between 10h00 and 14h00.
As explained during the last lecture, semester test 2 will cover material from magnetic design up to and including DC drives.
The rules remain as for Semester test 1.
The latest that the practical report can be handed in is Monday the 29th of April. No further extensions will granted. Submit your report to the secretary in Room 7-50 Eng 3.
The second practical assignment will be completed on the 15th of May. Please make the necessary preparations.
The final practical assignment is a demonstration. You are required to design and build a PWM modulator. Be ready to demonstrate your circuits on the 22nd of May. Components to build your circuits will be made available and date to collect them will be communicated as soon as the components have been procured.
For the class tests and all other tests to follow, the rules are the same: You can bring in your textbooks (power electronics and Drives books) and two A4 pages on which you can write information that you think will be helpful. No notes, tablets, laptops are allowed.
The report for the practical assignment is due on Friday,the 26th of April. This is to accommodate those who might still have to complete taking measurements.
As mentioned during the lecture earlier today, one can order the Drives Texbook online. The details are included below.
