Servo Amplifier Tutorial by Galil

The “Servo Amplifier” on-line tutorial reviews the operation of servo amplifiers used todrive DC and brushless motors. The complete tutorial with audio can be viewed athttp://www.galilmc.com/training/webconf.htmlThe tutorial begins with a discussion of the power regulating methods, leading to the twotypes, linear and pulse-width-modulated (PWM) amplifiers. The PWM amplifiers aremuch more common, whereas linear amplifiers are used with a power rating of less than100 watts.
