Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Use in Three-Phase BLDC Motor Controllers

Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Use in Three-Phase BLDC Motor Controllers

Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Use in Three-Phase BLDC Motor Controllers Written By: Ron Demcko | Slavomir Pala Abstract: The uses of industrial control systems and robotics are expanding rapidly due to their positive impact on costs and quality. This paper will discuss Aluminum Electrolytic capacitor roles as an output filter capacitor to improve power quality in Brushless DC Motor (BLDC) motor controller & drives. Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors can be used to provide exacting drive voltage to motors. This in turn improves system reliability and performance. The case studied will be a 3-phase, 24V / 30 watt BLDC motor with a rated speed of 4000rpm and rated torque of 0.072 N-m.

Demystifying Antenna Systems for IoT & 5G

  Demystifying Antenna Systems for IoT & 5G Tuesday, September 20, 2022 | 1:30 PM Eastern Time 5G is a broad term used to describe the next generation of wireless communications. Like previous generations of wireless (e.g. 3G, 4G, LTE), 5G supports the requirements of such previous generations, extends and enhances capabilities, and offers new, enabling features for various applications and markets. Whereas 3G and 4G standards have been developed with a key focus on significantly increasing the data rate, the 5G standard for sub-6GHz focuses on latency issues and massive connection challenges that appeared with the development of IoT. This webinar will help participants understand the requirements for IoT & 5G antennas and how to choose the right antenna
