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.

The InstaSPIN™-FOC enabled C2000™ Piccolo LaunchPad is an inexpensive evaluation platform designed to help you leap right into the world of sensorless motor control using the InstaSPIN-FOC solution.
One of the key systems in a solar energy harvester is a solar inverter. A solar inverter, or any kind of inverter for that matter, will take a Direct Current voltage input and convert it to an Alternating Current output that can be used to power standard appliances and electronics in a home or business. While just about any high power DC source can be used, the largest sector of inverter growth is in renewables, particularly solar applications. Watch this series to help you mitigate multiple solar inverter design challenges.
With the increase in smart building automation systems, the need for wireless, battery powered sensor nodes is growing. This training covers the basics of wireless sensor node optimization with a focus on extending battery life.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is now part of the smarter grid through the adoption of IPv6 communications networks. These 6LoWPAN-based networks address key concerns such as standards-based interoperability, reliability, low power, and long-distance connectivity.
Non-technical losses (“theft”) account for billions of dollars of revenue loss for utility providers around the world as individuals are able to hack meters to slow or stop the accumulation of energy usage statistics. This loss has driven increased requirements for enhancing the protection designed into new smart meters. This training session will discuss different methods of attacking smart meters and how TI’s analog portfolio can be used to detect or even prevent these attacks. In one scenario magnets are used to saturate any transformers present in the system.

We are all well aware that the demand for Electric Vehicles (EV) is increasing rapidly. This four part training session begins with a description of a typical EV system in part 1. Part 2 is a brief description of how both Lead Acid and Lithium Ion batteries are charged. Part 3 concentrates on the Phase Shifted Full Bridge topology, including the reasons why it is used and a detailed description of how it operates. Finally part 4 shows how a high power battery charger can be designed using the UCC28951-Q1 and other automotive grade parts from Texas instruments.
Ultrasonic sensing techniques have been popular in smart water meters because the technology avoids any moving parts which are prone to degrade over the lifetime of the product. The MSP430FR6047 microcontroller (MCU) family takes ultrasonic sensing solutions to next level of performance delivering <25ps of accuracy, detection of low flow rates <1 liter/hour and high precision of <5ps.
PT100/500/1000 Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs) are widely used in grid infrastructure and factory automation applications where high precision temperature measurement is often required. Technical requirements include either 20 mK precise Differential Temperature Measurement (DTM) for heat and cold meters from 0 to 180°C or better than 400 mK precision over the full range of -200 to 850°C for industrial sensor transmitters.
Delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are oversampling converters typically used in applications requiring higher resolution. However, ADCs do not work by themselves. In fact, they require several key components around them, including a front-end amplifier, a voltage reference, a clock source, power supplies, and a good layout. Many devices integrate these features together with the ADC to offer a complete system solution, which simplifies the design for customers and minimizes board space.
