Controlling A Motor

Motor Control Algorithms commonly used on Microchip MCUs and Digital Signal Controllers.

Algorithm Applicable Motors Notes
Field Oriented Control
(with sensor-less feedback)
PMSM, BLDC, ACIM HIgh efficiency
Excellent Torque Control
Low Cost
Field Oriented Control
(with sensored feeback)
PMSM, BLDC High Efficiency
