Digital Power Electronics Control Reference Books

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

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.

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.
