Talk Abstract

The induction motor has been the workhorse of industry since its invention in the late 1880s and is perhaps the most commonly used motor in the world today.  It has the advantage of being rugged, low cost, and without having a commutator or brushes.  Before the era of embedded controller and low-cost power electronics in the early 1980s, the applications of induction machines were limited mostly to power delivery applications where the accuracy of torque, speed, or position control was not critical.  Today, the performance of an induction machine under the Vector Control algorithm can rival that of the DC machine or brushless permanent magnet machine.  The algorithm is often presented in a rather complicated mathematical formulation.  In this talk, a basic structure and formulation of Vector Control will be introduced and explained in an intuitive way.

Ping Hsu Bio

Ping Hsu completed his undergraduate study in Taiwan in 1978.   Dr. Hsu earned an MSEE at SMU in 1980 and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at University of California, Berkeley in 1988.  After graduating from Berkeley, he joined the faculty of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and in 1990, joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at San Jose State University.  At SJSU he has served as a Professor in Electrical Engineering, Associate Dean and Interim Dean of the College of Engineering.    His research interests include: control theory, machine control, robotics, embedded systems, power electronics, and power systems.
