- Implementing a fully optimized ADC12 routine
- MSP430 tools, resources, and conclusions
While the market requires better power performance, it also continuously demands more functionality from devices. The challenge many developers face today is maintaining or improving battery operating life while simultaneously increasing a device’s capabilities. For many devices, it is not feasible to increase battery size or capacity; this means that developers need to achieve higher performance within the same power footprint, if battery life is not to be compromised.
While motor topologies have remained relatively unchanged over the past century, control techniques by comparison have experienced explosive growth. This has been driven in large part by technology advancements in the semiconductor industry. This seminar focuses specifically on advancements in the control of motors, with an emphasis on field-oriented principles with brushless AC motors.
This technical seminar offers an introduction to control theory which will be valuable to electronic, electrical and mechanical engineers. The aim is to provide engineers with an insight into elementary control problems and their solution. An understanding of basic engineering mathematics is recommended to benefit fully from this course.
