PMSM / BLDC Motor Control

Overview

Tools and Software
Solutions
Despite their different structures, all 3-phase permanent magnet motors (BLDC, PMSM or PMAC) are driven by a PWM-modulated three-phase bridge (three half bridges) so as to supply the motor with variable frequency and amplitude three-phase voltages and currents.

3-phase Field Oriented Control (FOC)

Field-oriented control (FOC), or vector control, is a technique for variable frequency control of the stator in a three phase AC induction motor drive using two orthogonal components. One defines the magnetic flux generated by the stator, while the o
