Application of motion equation in drives, the motor torque, the load torque, the dynamical torque. Operating modes, electromechanical transient effects. Drives with DC motors, induction motors, synchronous motors, SRM, EC motors, linear motors. For each type its properties, speed control strategy and block scheme of a controller, range of application. Drive control computer structure, shared resources organization, special hardware blocks for signal measurement and signal generation in drives, programming techniques and languages for software development and debugging, migration from analog signal processing to the digital signal processing, time sampling and amplitude quantization, aliasing, difference equations and digital control algorithms. Drive commissioning
