Rapid Electric Motor and Drive Efficiency Mapping, Going Beyond a Typical Power Analyzer
Mike Hoyer, Applications/Marketing Engineer
HBM Test and Measurement
Motor efficiency testing has become extremely important. Testing with a typical power analyser only offers inadequate numerical results. Instead, all electrical and mechanical signals must be acquired and analysed simultaneously at high sample rates with fast transfer to automation systems for accurate and rapid electric motor and drive efficiency mapping.

GaN HEMT: Design for Efficiency
Dr. Tamara Baksht, CEO
VisIC Technologies has achieved record high efficiencies with its GaN power conversion modules.
VisIC’s DC/DC converter, achieving over 99% switching efficiency at 200kHz at a 3kW power level, will be presented in detail. VisIC’s relatively simple DC/DC circuit demonstrates the exceptional performance of its GaN-based multichip module while enabling the overall system size and cost savings of higher frequency operation.

Model-Based Design for Motor and Power Control Applications
Tony Lennon, Motor & Power Applications
Simulation helps engineers apply power electronics and advance control design to electric vehicles, renewable energy, and motor control. Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink offers an environment that enables developers to explore advanced control concepts, capture requirements, design and validate using simulation, and implement ideas for production. This session will examine the scope of MathWorks solution for Model-Based Design.

CeraLink™ Compact Solution for Fast-Switching and Snubber Applications
Matt Reynolds, Field Applications Engineering Manager, Industrial Market
To achieve the goal of higher efficiencies, smaller size and lower cost, power electronics continue to demand capacitor technologies with much higher resonant frequencies. Paramount is a requirement for both very low inductance and low effective series resistance for the purposes of integration into semiconductor modules that require higher temperature stability, unwavering reliability and overall longer useful life. CeraLink™, is offered as a solution for these new technical requirements. Join our 30-min seminar as we demonstrate the high-performance benefits of this new technology.

KNOW THY POWER: Power Analysis for Energy Conversion Devices
Monika Little, Application Engineer
Proper evaluation of a product’s efficiency depends on accurate power measurements. There are a variety of ways to measure power. Since some are more accurate than others, choosing the right method to characterize and evaluate any power conversion device design, whether it is DC or AC, single or three phase system, is critical for success of the design project.

Improving Energy Saving Up To 10% Above Standards VFDs With Active Energy Control®
Jacob Feutz, Flex Center Manager
Learn about Active Energy Control®, an energy optimizing algorithm that monitors the output requirements while reducing the input power requirements for variable torque loads. By reducing the speed and running it below 60Hz, Active Energy Control® can optimize the input power required even more than a typical VFD.
