Microprocessor Based Control of Electric Machines

Course Description

The course deals with the application of microprocessors in electric machine control systems. First, the basic operating principles of microprocessors, microcontrollers and digital signal processors (DSPs) are discussed. Then, the most important principles of digital control, an adaptation of measured signals and implementation of control algorithms into the digital control system are discussed. The course analyzes the operation of digitally controlled DC, asynchronous and synchronous drives.

Learning Outcomes

  1. analyze implemented control algorithms in digital system
  2. evaluate performance of a control system
  3. analyze influence of control system parameters on operation of an electric motor drive
  4. analyze disturbances on a control system
