Alix Paultre of Power Systems Design
In this PSDcast Elias Ahmed of Altera talks to Alix Paultre of Power Systems Design about advanced synchronous motor control. The latest FPGAs can integrate industrial control protocols such as Ethercat or ProfiNet to improve performance and control. The replacement of traditional drives with variable speed drives (VSDs) in motor-driven systems provides significant efficiencies that can translate to up to 40% in energy savings.
