Event Details

The SFBAC (combined Santa Clara Valley, San Francisco, & Oakland/East Bay) IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) is very pleased to invite you to our January chapter meeting. We are excited and honored to have Mitch Polonsky, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Microchip, to speak on the topic of “Use of Power Monitor with Multiple Inputs Improves Opportunity for System Accuracy & Power Savings” in regard to utilizing power monitoring hardware to enhance the measurement and accuracy of system power measurements with a focus on consumer applications. Additional event details can be found below.

Registration will be $5 at the door with no exceptions (unless you register with an .edu or ti.com email).  You can register ahead of time without paying, but ALL ATTENDEES (except students/TI employees) will be expected to pay at the door.

Talk Title:

Use of Power Monitor with Multiple Inputs Improves Opportunity for System Accuracy & Power Savings

 

Abstract:

Having an accurate measurement of application power consumption facilitates intelligent choices between software, hardware and when to selectively turn off applications in the background. Using a power/energy monitor IC and software driver with Microsoft’s E3 service is a relatively new approach to measuring WIN10 OS system power dissipation. This approach can improve measurement accuracy by 28%. Traditionally, measuring software power has been difficult because it requires knowledge of both the active software applications and multiple active voltage rails in the system. Other solutions have attempted to estimate the power consumption without current sensors and active measurement. They have tended to rely heavily on the measurement of the CPU power consumption. The software-only approach attempts to model power dissipated by the CPU and GPU which have often have power dissipation figures that can be read by the system. Unfortunately this leaves the rest of the system with primarily software estimates to estimate energy consumed from other sources in the system. The power sensor approach uses a current sensor, sense resistor and software driver to associate specific application power to the responsible voltage rails at work in the system. We have modified a Kaby Lake PC reference design with 12 current sensors channels to prove out the system accuracy. The system showed more accurate power measurement when compared to the software only estimate.
