Black Hills – Oct Technical Session: Phase Technology Site Visit

October 3 @ 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

Founded in 1999, Phase Technologies developed Phase Perfect® digital phase converters, the first major advance of phase conversion technology in decades. Recognized as the world’s leading manufacturer of phase converter technologies, the company expanded its product offerings to include variable frequency drives (VFD). Specializing in VFD with Active Front End technology, Phase Technologies produces the only low harmonic, fully regenerative, phase-converting VFD that complies with IEEE 519, the international standard for allowable harmonic levels on utility mains. The company has an extensive product line-up of low harmonic, fully regenerative drives in both three-phase and phase-converting models. Phase Technologies relies on a team of in-house power electronics and mechanical design engineers to develop innovative products, encompassing all aspects of hardware and firmware design. All products are manufactured at our facilities in the USA under exacting quality standards. In-house processes include printed circuit board population and custom magnetics fabrication. The company operates a certified UL 508A panel shop to integrate our drives into rugged outdoor panels with custom options for applications including irrigation, oil and gas production and general industrial control. Phase Technologies was founded by one of the SDSMT alumni, Dr. Larry G. Meiners and his associates. Dr. Meiners was Professor in Electrical Engineering and Physics departments at SDSMT. This presentation provides unique opportunity to students, faculty and anyone interested to learn about phase converters and drives, real world power electronics products design and development.
