Control Engineering’s top 5 pieces of content over the past week includes VFDs, TSN, critical infrastructure and more.

1. Power quality, harmonics: How to select a variable frequency drive (VFD)

Part 2: Understand the advantages of 36-pulse input drive topology in medium-voltage (MV) motor applications and how medium-voltage VFD design mitigates harmonics and improves power quality.

2. Advancing industrial connectivity with TSN and single-pair Ethernet

Continuous improvements in Ethernet, such as faster data transmission, real-time communication and broader connectivity, are essential for its relevance in industrial settings.

3. Critical infrastructure systems are vulnerable to malware attacks

Engineers and computer scientists show how bad actors can exploit browser-based control systems in industrial facilities with easy-to-deploy, difficult-to-detect malware.

4. 2024 Control Engineering Product of the Year winners announced

The best automation, control, and instrumentation products, selected by Control Engineering subscribers.

5. Computer chip safeguards smart phone user data while enabling efficiency

Researchers have developed a security solution for power-hungry AI models that offers protection against two common attacks.
