Moving Forward With the Baton
by Frede Blaabjerg
From 1985 to 1987, I was a master’s student at Aalborg University, Denmark, working with power electronics and field vector-oriented control of electrical drives. The switching frequency was 20 kHz to make the drive silent, and we were using a combination of MOSFETs and bipolar transistors to obtain such speed in the power stage. Simultaneously, by sampling around 5 kHz, the processor was pushed to the limit by using the Assembler software. At that time, all of the technology we utilized was the state of the art. Read More...

Upcoming Webinar: Online Prognostic Condition Monitoring for Wind Turbines Using Current Signals
Presenter: Wei Qiao, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Abstract- This webinar will present the pioneering work conducted by the Power and Energy System Laboratory at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA on low-cost, online, prognostic condition monitoring (PCM) for wind turbines and their mechanical and electrical subassemblies, such as gearbox, bearing, blade, drivetrain, and generator. The PCM methods primarily use current signals acquired from generator terminals or in the power electronic converter control system to online diagnose and prognose the faults and predict the RUL of the wind turbines in all operating conditions. In addition to current signals, the PCM can also be used to include vibration signals in wind turbines to provide additional PCM capability and improved diagnosis and prognosis accuracy. Read More...
