This course aims to provide undergraduate students with the necessary knowledge that will enable them to understand the structure and operation principles of direct and alternating current electrical machines. Initially, the fundamental knowledge concerning the study and analysis of directand alternating current electric circuits in steady state and transient operation is presented, since this material is necessary for understanding the operation of electrical machines. Subsequently, the course focuses on the study of steady state and transient operation of the considered electrical machines under no- and full load conditions. The creation of rotating magnetic field, the power flowand efficiency, the induced voltages and torques in rotating electrical machines are described and analyzed in detail. The analysis of operation of electrical machines is carried out taking into account their equivalent electric circuits.
