I am posting this here since we don't have critical mass on the LinkedIn
subgroup on education.

Electronic Design is sponsoring an online seminar on power electronics.
At least a few sessions should be of interest to us techy types:
Batteries, Smart Grid, Controlling Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors,

Don Tute of ED says this about the Sychronous Motors session:
"One Powerful Day’s next session will deal with controlling permanent
magnet synchronous motors. This is already a big deal with Asian
white-goods manufacturers, which means that ultimately PM motors will have
global impact.  The promotional write-up for this session says, “As the
cost of processor based motor control continues to drop, many applications
can now affordably take advantage of the many benefits afforded by PMSM
topologies, such as increased efficiency and smoother operation. This
session covers the basic operation of PMSMs, and how they can be
controlled using Field Oriented Control (FOC) with both sensored and
sensor-less techniques. IPM motors are also presented, with a discussion
on how their saliency affects sensor-less FOC.” This is the first time
I’ve seen field oriented control mentioned in the same paragraph as
permanent magnet motors, so this should an interesting talk.  The
presenter will be International Rectifier’s Poul Erik Dokkedal."
