17/10/2017 - 18/10/2017 - ECPE Workshop: Current Measurements for Power Electronics Applications and in Lab Scale

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Nando Kaminski, University of Bremen
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mark-M Bakran, University of Bayreuth
Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Jochen Koszescha, ECPE

Many engineers consider current measurement as a com-modity, which you specify and purchase. But this is just the beginning of the challenge:

How to specify accuracy requirement including static and dynamic error, temperature and EMI environment?

Do you choose analog insulation or a digital one?

Do you combine measurement for overcurrent protection and control or keep them separate?

How to integrate everything to save space and money?

As a consequence, one finds many different solutions on the market from traditional transducers to state of the art closed or open loop hall sensors to different variations of shunt type measurements or different field sensors.

This workshop aims to give an overview on the available technologies and their differences with regard to application in a commercial product or just for laboratory purpose. Speakers will give technical background information on new methods but also present challenges originating from the application.

As this has a workshop character, there will be ample time to discuss with experts and among the participants current issues in current measurement.

All presentations and discussions will be in English language.
