Abstract: PMBLDC motors are new workhorses and have successfully replaced conventional DC and Induction motors from portable power tools and home appliances and are readily used in robotics and drones. These motors have best-in-class torque-to-weight ratios, and efficient controllers can be designed for various use case scenarios. The high availability of off-the-shelf BLDC motors in low to medium voltage and power ratings has enabled them to be employed in many battery-operated tools and appliances. However, designing a motor controller hardware involves many challenges like selecting switches, controllers, and sensors. Moreover, the proper layout of analog, digital, and power signals on a single hardware board poses a unique challenge and requires a non-trivial PCB design.
The proposed webinar lays a guideline for making such single-board BLDC motor controllers with the following points:
1- BLDC motor basics.
2- BLDC motor controllers.
3- BLDC controller design requirements.
4- Component selection.
5- PCB Layout considerations.
Prabhat Ranjan Tripathi, Ph.D., SMIEEE, is leading the Power Electronics & Systems Design team at FleetRF PVT. LTD. India. He received his Ph. D. from EEE Department, BIT Mesra Ranchi. He has been a visiting student at the center of research on microgrids (CROM), Aalborg University, Denmark [May-20 to Dec-20], and the Electrical Engineering Division at the University of Cambridge, UK [Sep,17-Mar,18]. He has hands-on experience in the hardware design of various DC-DC, DC-AC converters, and motor drives and has worked on various PCB designing tools like ALTIUM Designer, EAGLE, and Ki CAD. His research area is aerospace power systems, BLDC motor controllers, and battery storage and management systems. Dr. Prabhat is a senior member of IEEE and is associated with various IEEE societies, including IES, IAS, PES, PELS, and CAS.

Abstract: With Electric Vehicles (EV) becoming more common, the electromagnetic noise they generate is an issue that more designers must face. Karen Burnham, Principal Scientist at Electro Magnetic Applications, brings lessons learned from years of troubleshooting electric vehicles, both hybrid and plug-in, to discuss some of the most important EV noise factors.
This webinar will be extremely helpful to a wide audience looking to become more sustainable with zero emissions commercial vehicles.
