How-tos

Webinars

    Overview:

    You know the basics of electrical power measurements, have set up your dyno, and made key measurements – which is great. But as your motor and drive projects progress, the complexities of system drive requirements can change frequently. Control algorithms, networked communications, and mechanical systems form a complex web of interactions that need sorting. This 60-minute webinar explains how to get past ground-level measurements and delve into comprehensive solutions that leverage test and measurement instruments including power analyzers, high-speed data acquisition, and real-time software.

    Topics include:

    • How to avoid the “gotcha's” of inverter-based measurements
    • Computations for field-oriented control
    • The integration of CAN bus communications
    • Correlations in the frequency domain
    • Other advanced motor and drive topics

    The technical presentation includes an audience Q&A.

    Overview:

    Why should you be concerned with your product’s power system voltage and current harmonics?

    From an engineering perspective, harmonics produce excessive heat in equipment that causes significant damage and results in inefficient operation. From a business perspective, harmonics lead to reduced system capacity and increased maintenance, downtimes, and costs. To minimize or eliminate these issues and establish acceptable levels of harmonics, numerous power quality standards with specifications and limits for harmonic distortion, such as IEEE 519-2014 and IEC61000-3-2, have been introduced.

    During this webinar, attendees will:

    • Gain knowledge on the inner workings of harmonics
    • Learn best practices for accurately measuring harmonics
    • Recognize and distinguish the critical difference between DFT and FFT
    • Discover important measurement tradeoffs across various test equipment
