ELECTRICAL MACHINES III Notes
Objective : Electrical Machine III Notes – EM III Notes – EM Pdf Notes
This subject is an extension of previous machines courses. It deals with the detailed analysis of Synchronous generators and motors which are the prime source of electrical power generation and its utilities. Also concerns about the different types of single phase motors which are having significant applications in house hold appliances and control systems.
