The basic elements of electric drive systems are introduced in this Chapter. The knowledge base comprising several disciplines that interact and encompass the selection of diverse components that go into a drive system for an application are brought out. Typical drive structures and control hierarchies that guide the designer to build an inherently reliable and well-protected drive system are discussed.
