Laboratory Development for Electrical Power / Machine Control CourseAbstract:A course in electrical power / electrical machine is again gaining more popularity in electricalengineering technology curriculum due to the critical role energy continues to play in our dailylife and the unprecedented quest for more efficient and smart electrical appliances. Effectiveteaching of this course requires the development of appropriate laboratory experiments that serveas platform for students to practically implement the theories covered in the classroom.This paper therefore highlights the laboratory experiments developed for the electrical power /machine control course in the department of Computer, Electrical, and Information Technology atIndiana University – Purdue University (IPFW), Fort Wayne, Indiana. This course is one of thecore technical courses in the department. The laboratory experiments are developed with thesingular objective of exposing students to real world application of the materials covered in theclassroom. A brief description of each of the eight laboratory experiments, their respectiveobjectives and the results obtained by some of the students are discussed in this paper. These labswere first used during the Spring Semester of 2011 and have been improved every year since then.Student assessments for this course/lab are also presented in this paper and this feedback has beenpositive and encouraging.
