These video series will talk about the different types of motors used in the industry; DC, Brushless DC, Steppers, Permanent Magnet Synchronous, and AC Induction. To gather a better understanding of motors, differences of these motors with advantages and disadvantages of each will be shown. Basic motor drive circuits will be discussed from full H-Bridge drive to half-bridge for 3-phase motors. Other drive concepts such as 6-step commutation along with drive issues such as current recirculation will be discussed. Field Oriented Control will also be discussed and how
This online training series will teach you the details necessary to utilize the Control Law Accelerator (CLA)
This 6 part series provides information for C2000 InstaSPIN-FOC Motor Control LaunchPad and BoosterPack.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This 7 Part Series with the MSP430 5xx Experimenters Board will cover the following topics:
- Active and low power mode operation
- Mixed signal application example
- Hardware timers to conserve power
- Implementing a fully optimized ADC12 routine
- MSP430 tools, resources, and conclusions
The MSP430 ultra-low-power microcontroller family now includes the MSP430FR4x/FR2x series of MCUs with unmatched flexibility in the form of the industry’s lowest-power software-configurable LCD driver, abundant IO and unified non-volatile FRAM. These easy to use microcontroller series can be evaluated with the low cost MCU development tool, the MSP430FR4133 LaunchPad. Target Socket boards can also be paired with the MSP-FET programmer/debugger for development in a full system.
This six part training walks through the usage of the MSP430FR5969 LaunchPad. The training explains the working of the demo code that is pre-programmed in the LaunchPad. You will also learn how to setup CCS projects and initialize and use key peripherals in the MSP430FR59xx family of MCUs.
