ECE 595S - Electromagnetic and Electromechanical Component Design

Lecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3

Counts as:

Experimental Course Offered: Fall 2007

Catalog Description:
This course focuses on the design of electromagnetic and electromechanical systems, with power applications. The course includes optimization methods, modeling techniques for design (as opposed to for simulation), and the formulation of design problems as optimization problems.

Required Text(s): None.
