The purpose of these notes is be used to introduce Electrical Engineering students to Electrical
Machines, Power Electronics and Electrical Drives. They are primarily to serve our students at
MSU: they come to the course on Energy Conversion and Power Electronics with a solid background
in Electric Circuits and Electromagnetics, and many want to acquire a basic working knowledge
of the material, but plan a career in a different area (venturing as far as computer or mechanical
engineering). Other students are interested in continuing in the study of electrical machines and
drives, power electronics or power systems, and plan to take further courses in the field....
