Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Labs

Electrical Machines lab

Objective -

The objective of the Electrical machines lab is to expose the student to the operation and performance of DC generators ,DC Motors , Alternators , Synchronous motors, Induction Motors , Special Motors ,Transformers and give them experimental skill.

Description -

Electrical Machine laboratory is conducted for the undergraduate students in their second year onwards. The course covers practical experiment on transformers: open circuit, short circuit, and load test; unbalanced loading and parallel operation of transformers; speed control and load characteristics of shunt, series and compound DC machines; induction machines: blocked rotor, no-load, and loading tests; operation of single-phase induction motors; operation of a synchronous machine connected to a large external source.

Outcome Of The Lab -

By performing experiments on these electrical machines , the practical knowledge of the students gets enlarged and that will very helpful in their industrial career
