Rapid Development and Deployment of Highly Efficient, Three Phase Motor and Motion Control Systems Featuring InstaSPIN
Learn about cutting edge motor control solutions and how they can revolutionize your application. Even those with limited motor control experience will learn to identify, tune and fully control any type of three-phase, variable speed, sensorless, synchronous or asynchronous motor control system in just minutes. The experience builds on InstaSPIN and new control methods, which provide robust control across dynamic speed and load ranges of the system and significantly slashes setup time by replacing hard-to-tune PID controllers with simple, single-parameter tuning. Ideal for applications that require accurate speed control, minimal disturbance, and undergo multiple state transitions or experience dynamic changes.
What attendees will learn:
- Identify, auto tune, and achieve full sensorless field oriented torque control within minutes
- Eliminate the need for rotor sensors / encoders / resolvers for any three phase synchronous or asynchronous variable speed motors
- Enable a robust speed controller, add movements, and incorporate into a state based motion plan
- Silicon, software and tools for success
Attendees will also receive a discount on the new TI InstaSPIN controller card.Presenters:
Chris Clearman, C2000 Product Marketing, Texas Instruments, Inc.
Chris has been with TI—and primarily on motor control—for over a dozen years. He has been working on the InstaSPIN technologies for the past three years and most enjoys the look on an engineer's face when THEIR motor is being controlled with sensorless FOC in just minutes. He has a BS in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University where he studied DSP, controls, and semiconductor physics.
Don Hotchkiss, Field Application Engineer, Arrow Electronics, Inc.
Don has a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in Electrical Engineering. Don has over 20 years of experience in the electronics industry. His early years in engineering focused on board designs for high performance DSP and programmable logic based systems as well as ASIC design. The last 12 years he has been working in Sales and as a Field Application Engineer. Don joined Arrow about a year ago as a senior FAE.
