About this course

This workshop class is for those aiming for a clear understanding of 3-phase brushless permanent magnet motors and their control at the fundamental level. BLDC (Brushless DC) and permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) designs are reviewed along with the classic control algorithms used for each. The material covers the dsPIC33xx architecture and motor control peripherals, along with an in-depth look at the Microchip demo board, MCLV-2. The workshop will also provide two hands-on labs using a dsPIC33CH128MP508, which will cover sensored BLDC (six step) control, sensorless BLDC (six step) control and sensorless PMSM (Field Oriented) control. An additional introduction will be presented for using and debugging a Dual Core device. These labs will also use a new high-speed "X2CScope" virtual oscilloscope for tuning and control purposes. This class provides a foundation from which further motor control refinements and control techniques can be explored with confidence.
