Online Workshop Introduction to Advanced Digital Control of Power Electronics

We are in the middle of our first online workshop covering our Introduction to Advanced Digital Control of Power Electronics. Three of the four days have gone by and the group have learned some stuff, I hoped.

The technical details of how the workshop has been delivered are

  • On Zoom
  • Everyone is allowed to talk and everyone can take themselves off mute and ask a question.
  • We go through the material and then there are questions and comments and some answers.
  • The chat is enabled and people drop questions or comments in the chat regularly.
  • It has a very friendly vibe.

We have people from time zones in

  • Australia
  • United States
  • Canada
  • Mexico
  • Belgium
  • South Africa
  • Austria and
  • Turkey

Some people are up early and some are up late. The time seems to work fairly well.

I was worried it wouldn’t be effective but it seems to be working. Hopefully we can do it again soon.

And we got some very nice positive feedback.

Thanks for a great course, I am really getting a lot from it. – Andries Putter

“A lightbulb moment. I have been doing floating point maths all through my controller code then putting a floating point value into a low precision PWM. The precision extension is amazing to get the effective number of bits of the PWM higher.

From Derek B.

Thank you so much for hosting this workshop. I’m already finding it extremely helpful.

It is so great to be able to help with this.

Looking forward to seeing people do great things with their digital control of power electronics. I try to change the world one power converter at a time.
