Electrical Machinery and Electric Equipment Discipline was one of the main disciplines when Shandong University of Technology was initially founded in 1946 and authorized with the rights to grant master degree and Ph. D degree in 1986 and 2003, respectively. It is the Key Discipline of Shandong Province and was “985” Phase I key discipline with the affiliations of Shandong Engineering Research Centers for Permanent Magnet Machines and for Magnetic Force Separation.
The discipline covers such researches as follows, (1) Theory and design technique of electrical machine and electric equipment which mainly consists of intelligent design system, electric and magnetic field theory and its application, (2) Motor speed adjustment and motion control technique which are mainly composed of AC adjustable-speed motor and its performance analysis, electromechanical integration, artificial intelligence technique and its application in motor drive, and (3) Simulation and fault diagnosis of electrical machine and electric equipment which mainly concerns measurement technology, computer simulation, and fault diagnosis on electrical machine and electric equipment. The discipline focuses on science research and has published about 280 academic papers on electrical machine and the correlative discipline recently, meanwhile it pays attention to engineering application and has developed large numbers of electrical machine products which has being widely used in industry.
