Digital Power Electronics Control Reference Books

Recently I got asked for advice on what we have for Digital Power Electronics Control Reference Books.

This is the link to the list on Amazon.

Digital power books at the top and hardcore control texts at the bottom.

We have all of these books on our shelves.

All are good.

In-house course digital power electronics

We recently ran our digital control course in-house for a power electronics company.

Great group of guys and this is what they said.

“Everybody enjoyed the course, and it’s given us a lot of food for thought!”

Why choose in-house course digital power electronics training?

  1. Keep know-how in-house.
  2. Minimal disruption to your team.
  3. Everyone gets the same exposure.
  4. It’s team building.
  5. In house means no travel and travel can be hard to get approved.
  6. Have the teacher all to yourself.
  7. Great value when you add it all up.
  8. Emphasis on material specifically for you.

When can we have it?

Send us an e-mail and we’ll work a time out.

Is it the same as the publicly available course?

Yes – we use

  • #Teledyne #Lecroy scopes
  • AP 300 analysers
  • Boost coverters
  • Fyfe digital power platforms

It’s run by the same team

We also do the same workshop practical experiments to reinforce the learning.

Can you tell us who had the recent in-house course?

No. It is covered by an NDA so we won’t disclose which company it was.

 

Feedback about the latest webinar

ELMG July Webinar feedback

Thank you for your time, Hamish. It was an hour with quite some information in.

I also was on such a seminar you mentioned, which showed an analog to digital compensator “transformation” (TI).

I also think that most of the papers I saw did it this way. I am more used to handle analog poles… Seems to be interesting to get a better feeling for the z-Plane poles/zeroes. Is there also some paper/book you can recommend to get some better feeling about s vs z plane?


A question from my side is: You mentioned a tool you can download and try some code for free, if I remember right. Can you post, which one that was?


… I am looking forward to the next.

 

The free software tool is SciLab www.scilab.org

It is a good tool.  We use it for demonstrations.

Next webinar will be end of August.  Dates will be available soon.

Visit to SpaceX – super cool

One of the highlights of being a world traveling digital power electronics guy is visiting cool companies. And these guys are super cool. The view from the cafe is exceptional. Big dreams and implementing relentlessly.

For your Digital Control Workshop which Micro Controllers are taught?

For your Digital Control Workshop which microcontrollers are taught in the class?

Texas Instruments?

Thanks John

 

Hi John,

The uniqueness of the Digital Control Workshop is that it is not focussed on one microcontroller family.  We cover the key know how that ensures you and your team will get your digital power supply robust and reliable.

Here at ELMG Digital Power our platform is an FPGA based power converter controller that we have developed.  We sell power electronic specific FPGA IP blocks for PWM, filters, three to two blocks and all the other required power electronic blocks.

We have development experience in using processors for power electronics control from

  • Xilinx
  • Atmel
  • Microchip
  • STM
  • AD and
  • Ti

Our course came about when and R and D manager asked us why his team had knowledge gaps that we were now helping fix.  These gaps were common across a number of our OEM clients.  We address these key common knowledge gaps in the course.

Happy to have a netmeeting or skype call to talk through this at anytime.
