Permanent Magnet (PM) synchronous and brushless dc motor drives are strong candidates for high performance applications. With the opening up of immense high volume applications in small processing drives, hand tools, automotive drives, home appliance drives (such as hvac, refrigerator, freezer, washer and dryer), the demand for engineers with a theoretical understanding of the PM synchronous and brushless drives is growing. There is a critical need for more design, testing and application engineers to develop these products. There is also an increasing importance through research and development to find ways to realize sensor and sensorless based drives, to develop and design parameter insensitive controllers, and to provide auto-tuning with the process/load. Further, the end users of variable speed drives need to be knowledgeable about the latest developments in this field (its current status and its future direction) so they can plan new capital investments wisely and to have the latest technology incorporated in the modernization of their plants.

This course is designed for engineers specializing in drives technology and the end users who utilize the many aspects of its application. A state-of-the-art coverage of the subject matter based on research publications is included in this course. Preferably the participants have a bachelors degree in electrical engineering, or experience in other engineering fields with a significant amount of industrial experience.

The fee for the course is $1,495 per person and includes course materials, lecture notes, continuous refreshments, and lunch each day.
