Undergraduate courses in electromechanical energy conversion are typically oriented toward the steady-state analysis of electrical machines. The advent of low-cost computer power and the availability of numerical software tools provide the opportunity to fundamentally reorient the pedagogical approach to the topic. A new approach is consistent with the developing need to emphasize the study of new machine designs and machines employed for control purposes as well as machines for use in more traditional power applications. This paper presents the results obtained from simulations developed as an integral part of an undergraduate electrical machines course at the University of Dayton, USA. Sample simulation files are presented to demonstrate the ease with which the matrix model of the machine is transferred to the program. The matrix models and simulation results of the following machines are included: the single-phase transformer; the variable-reluctance machine; the cylindrical-rotor dual-winding machine; the symmetrical two-phase induction motor; a PWM-controlled DC machine; and an inverter-driven brushless machine. The selected machines provide a systematic framework for analysis and simulation and present problems of increasing complexity to the student
