How to Correlate Control Events to Power Events Webinar

3-Phase Power and Motors Masters Webinar Series

Join Teledyne LeCroy for this Learning Lab series on measuring high-power, three-phase and motor inverter and drive systems with an 8-channel high-resolution oscilloscope or motor drive analyzer. Learn about static and dynamic measurements, from AC line to inverter switching, and line outputs to motor mechanical performance.

How to Correlate Control Events to Power Events: Validating and Debugging Inverter/Drive Systems

In this session (Part Three) we will review examples of using calculated per-cycle power waveforms to validate and debug control system operation to power section behaviors.

Topics to be included: Acquisition, validation and debug of basic motor drive control signals Using 2-wattmeter method to calculate power Using mathematical tools to calculate key parameters of motor and drive performance Using calculated per-cycle waveforms to identify power section misbehaviors

Who should attend? Inverter subsection engineers, motor/drive control system engineers, and inverter/drive systems engineers who design dynamic control and power systems that operate under highly controlled conditions.

What attendees will learn? Best in class techniques for measuring and understanding performance of and interrelationships between control and power sections.

Presenter: Stephen Murphy, Teledyne LeCroy Applications Engineer

Measure, graph and record three sensor types with one tool
The 1524 Reference Thermometer measures, graphs, and records PRTs, thermocouples, and thermistors. This thermometer readout delivers exceptional accuracy, wide measurement range, logging, and trending, all in a handheld tool you can take anywhere.
The 1524 lets you handle field applications, laboratory measurements, and data logging with ease. And with the dual channel measurement capabilities of the model 1524, you can do twice the work in half the time.
Three sensor types

  • PRTs: –200 °C to 1000 °C
  • Thermocouples –200 °C to 2315 °C
  • Precision thermistors: –50 °C to 150 °C

Accuracy

  • PRTs: up to ±0.011 °C
  • Thermocouples: ±0.24 °C for J,K,L,M
  • Precision thermistors: ±0.002 °C

Fast mode

  • PRTs: 0.45 seconds per sample
  • Thermocouples: 0.3 seconds per sample
  • Precision thermistors: 0.3 seconds per sample
