Applied Control of Electrical Drives using EMBED


Applied Control of Electrical Drives using EMBED

Presented by: Prof. Dr. ir. Duco W. J. Pulle
Director of EMSynergy,
Guest professor at RWTH-ISEA Aachen and member of the Texas Instruments InstaSPIN development team

Hosted by: Prof. Dr. Andrea Vezzini Professor at Bern University of Applied Sciences,
Head of BFH-CSEM Energy Storage Research Center and Deputy Head SCCER Mobility.

Date & Location: October 24-26, 2016
Bern University of Applied Sciences,
Division of Electrical- and Communication Engineering
Quellgasse 21, CH-2501 Biel/Bienne ; Switzerland

Audience & Overview
Learn how to design and control electrical drives using model-based design in solidThinking EMBED and Texas Instruments Control Boards. During the workshop you will become familiar with all aspects of drive operation: from speed/current control, space-vector modulation up to all aspects of sensorless control.


The workshops are designed for practicing engineers, teachers and students who:
  • Want to get direct and real-time control of a motor, using the model based design approach in solidThinking EMBED
  • Look for an affordable and easy-to-learn solution in Motor and Drive Controls
  • Need to get up-to-speed with spinning motors but are not C-code literate
The participants will work with the following hardware from Texas Instruments:
  • LAUNCHXL-F28069M
  • BOOSTXL-DRV8301
  • 2MTR-DYNO (Dual PM machine setup)
  • LVACIMTR (Induction machine)
The approach and the experience acquired in this workshop can be readily extended to any Permanent Magnet or Induction Machine or other electrical systems with embedded controls (like power electronics, inverters, linear motors,…).
