TLDR; I'm looking for a good online source for electromechanics material I can pre-learn prior to taking the course at university


Hi folks,
In the fall I'm starting my last semester of EE, and one of the courses we have to take is Electromechanics.
We just found out who the professor is for the course and sadly the prof assigned is the worst professor (by far) I've encountered across my 2 degrees. During the last course we had with him (the only one I figured I would have to take from him) he screamed at me in front of the entire class on a couple different occasions for such serious things as asking him to clarify what he had written on the white board.

Needless to say I'm now a bit worried about this course. I figure the best way I can handle the class is to not say anything to the prof and work hard giving him no room to piss on me.

One thing I'd like to do over the next month before classes start is get a head start on the material. Does anyone have a good online source for material I can take a look at??
Thanks
-Dave

Here is the course description:

This course covers the principles of electromechanical energy conversion and electric motors. A review of magnetic field behavior leads to magnetic circuit calculations and permanent magnet circuit behavior. Energy balance principles are used to develop force and torque relationships for many electromechanical applications including relays, meter movements and motor operation. Basic principles of motor operation such as rotating magnetic fields, efficiency and machine ratings are given as a prelude to an in depth presentation of AC and DC motor behavior. Emphasis is placed on motor control and application.

Maybe someone knows links to old US Army and Navy training films and books from 1950's ?

Hello Dave,

I'm sorry to hear about your previous negative experience with this professor. However, it's great that you are taking the initiative to prepare for the course ahead of time.

As for online sources for electromechanics material, there are several reliable and reputable websites that offer resources for this subject. Some suggestions include Khan Academy, MIT OpenCourseWare, and Coursera. These platforms offer free online courses, lectures, and tutorials on electromechanics that you can access and review at your own pace.

In addition, there are also many textbooks and reference materials available online that cover the principles of electromechanical energy conversion and electric motors. Some popular titles include "Electromechanical Energy Conversion" by David W. Hart and "Electric Machinery Fundamentals" by Stephen J. Chapman.

I would also recommend reaching out to your university's library or academic resource center for additional materials or resources that may be available to you as a student.

Best of luck in your studies and I hope you have a better experience with this course. Don't hesitate to seek help from your peers or other professors if needed. Remember, it's always better to ask for clarification than to struggle and fall behind.

Best,
[Your name]
