Advanced Control Technologies for AC/DC Machines & Motion Control presented by Dal Ohm, Ph.D., President, Drivetech, Inc.
This course is to provide fundamental concepts of electric motors and motor control techniques as well as introducing advanced technologies practically in use. This course also discusses control electronics hardware and AC/DC motor control algorithms, servo system feedback control, PID regulators and their tuning procedure…read more
Electric Motor Test Cell Design and Best Practices presented by Mitch Marks, Motor Testing Specialist, HBM Test and Measurement
The design of an electric motor dyno test cell can range from a simple benchtop bicycle break to a multi-million dollar system. No matter the scale of a system, there are certain practices that can make a system effective or a nightmare. Many of these problems come from inexperience or lack of budget. New technologies and industry knowledge can help to improve any test stand…read more
Design Trends and Performance Analysis of BEV & HEV Electric Machines presented by Dr. Dave Staton, Founder, Motor Design Ltd.
There are a wide variety of new electric machine designs being developed for use in battery electric vehicles (BEV) and hybrid electric vehicles. Different motor types are available such as brushless permanent magnet (BPM), induction, switched & synchronous reluctance and wound field synchronous machines. The BPM is available with radial or axial fields…read more
Magnetics Bootcamp presented by Dr. Stan Trout, Spontaneous Materials
The Magnetics Bootcamp focuses on teaching you the basics of magnetics with an emphasis on permanent magnets. If you need to understand magnets better for your job, want to understand the conference presentations, or are new to the field, the Magnetics Bootcamp is the perfect place to start. It assumes that one has little or no background in magnetics. The Bootcamp will cover all the essential fundamental magnetic concepts such as hysteresis, the nature of magnetism, units, magnet processing, thermal effects, magnetizing, self-demagnetization, measurements and case studies…read more
