High Accuracy AC Analog Input Module for Voltage & Current measurement using High Resolution Precision ADC for Protection Relay
Welcome to the world of power systems. This training session covers quick introduction to power systems and need for protection relay, protection relay modular architecture, AC analog input module (AIM), key specifications, time and frequency domain analysis, coherent, simultaneous and over sampling, selection of ADC and other key components and TI solutions. Design details for TI Design TIDA-00834 and links to TI designs customer can refer when designing AIM.
This presentation will focus on the voltage and current monitoring solutions within HEV/EV system – specifically on overcoming the challenges of high voltages and maintaining an isolation barrier. Afterwards, we will discuss specific op amp parameters to consider for monitoring within the on-board charger (OBC), battery management system (BMS), DC/DC converter, and inverter end equipment.
TI’s op amp specs are generally better than or equal to nearly all of the legacy part specs. Whether your focus is on personal electronics, industrial or medical, every engineer interested in learning how to combat the problem of why our higher performance, lower cost op amps sometimes don’t work in legacy sockets should view this training. Learn from a training structured “definition by example”, based on real world cases to de-mystify these “TI doesn’t work in my legacy socket” occurrences.
The topics will cover system design issue and solution for Building Automation, Power Delivery and Test & Measurement. TI experts introduce the latest technology and innovation system reference design. Discover ways to enhance the time-to-market and create safer and efficient industrial systems.
Current sense amplifiers have been implemented in applications used for current and power measurement.
