ELMG Digital Power invites you to register for our tailored training course, ‘Introduction to the Digital Control of Power Electronics’ to be held in Camarillo, California on January 30th – February 2nd 2017.
ELMG Digital Power INC – Empowering you to achieve the Digital Control advantage
Hands on Course
This hands-on course aims to provide engineers with solutions to the key issues in digital signal processing, using microcontrollers, microprocessors, DSP and FPGA. These solutions can then be employed effectively in the control of power electronics.
Over the four-day course, split into morning and afternoon sessions, participants will be provided with targeted training on digital power electronics control covering the detail of both digital control and power electronics and how they go together. They will gain the ability to close a digital power converter feedback loop in a stable fashion by following repeatable easily understood steps, as well as techniques to understand what the effect digital control’s limited bandwidth, processing power, number of bits and dynamic range have in digital power electronic control.
What you get from the course?
Engineers who attend the course will gain in-depth knowledge of the interaction of power electronics and digital control; this includes sampling and aliasing in the context of fixed and variable frequency switching power converters. There will be take away methods and steps to solve design issues such as one sample noise, precision limits in filters and controllers, non-linearity, quantization and other digital effects. A copy of the slide slide presentation course booklet covering the material presented and lunch each day will be provided.
Who is the course for?
The course has been specifically designed to meet the learning needs of engineers, regardless of whether you are:
- a practicing power electronics engineer,
- an experienced engineer moving into the area of digital control of power electronics,
- a software engineer working in digital power control teams,
- a firmware engineer involved in FPGA development in digital power control teams,
- a mid-career engineer transitioning from analogue control to digital control, or
- a recent graduate with some experience (<5 years) and looking to up skill in the area of digital control.
The course will be presented and led by Dr. Hamish Laird, Principal Engineer at ELMG Digital Power. An extremely well-regarded teacher, engineer, researcher and public speaker, Hamish works in developing digitally controlled power converters and controllers for converters. He is the author of seventeen academic papers on digital power electronics and power quality and has taught previous digital power courses at Camarillo.
