The Motors, Generators, and Controls course provides comprehensive, hands-on instruction in the terminology, principles, and applications of the DC motor, AC synchronous motor, phase shifter, and stepper motor. Following a carefully designed instructional program, students are able to perform troubleshooting exercises on analog and pulse-width modulated (PWM) DC motor positioning, analog and PWM DC motor speed control, variable frequency speed control of an AC synchronous motor, operation of a tachogenerator circuit, and speed and position control of a stepper motor with optional computer interface.
