Einstein College of Engineering UNIT-I INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRICAL DRIVES robots, pumps, machine tools, etc. Prime movers are required in drive systems to provide the sources: di esel engines, petrol engines, hydraulic motors, electric motors etc. There are several advantages of electrical drives: a. Flexi ble control characteristic This is particularly true when power electronic converters are employed where the dynamic and steady state characteristics of the motor can be controlled by controlling the applied voltage or current.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
