The objective of this course is to describe the basic concepts of power devices used in the conversion of mechanical to electrical power and the application of magnetic circuit analysis with respect to energy conversion principles. Students are also presented and exposed to the operation and application of electrical machines (transformers, DC motors, synchronous and asynchronous machines) in power systems and to the use of power electronics in these devices.

Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Explain the basic electrical principles that are necessary for power engineering
- Analyze magnetic circuits using analytical techniques
- Define the various types of electrical machines and their use in electro-mechanical energy conversion
- Examine the methods by which electrical energy is converted from one voltage level to another using transformers
-Identify the operation and application of electrical machines (synchronous machine, induction motors, DC motors)
