Lecture at a training workshop on intelligent drive valves at Danfoss China

Asst. Prof. Dr. Damir Vrančić, member of Our Department, was a lecturer at a 3-day training workshop at Danfoss China Representative Office in Beijing. His talk addressed the iMCV valve drives that are produced by Danfoss Trata d.o.o., Slovenia. Electronics and firmware for these valves were developed by Department of Systems and Control at Jožef Stefan Institute. The valve drive includes an innovative system for detecting oscillations in a given valve operating point and reducing them by lowering the valve drive gain. Solution has been patented and embedded in AME435 drive series, being sold in more than 20000 pieces already.
