Advanced Electric Circuits 

This module is all about machines and drive systems. The drives include single-phase, three-phase drives, DC drives, servo drives and stepper motors. The module uses a software that practically and effectively explains to trainees all about machines  and all electric circuits and drives that exist in the industry and in the home. It then introduces the components and areas of application of the modern servo drives and stepper motors.
