The project consists of the design and assembly of the hardware for bench-testing a BLDC motor (may be coupled to a second motor in the bench to generate counter-torque and others sensors), the power electronics and the control algorithms for the electric machines.
The particularity here is, that the motor is a three-phase machine, with an increased complexity over a brushed motor. This required additional feedback and different control algorithms. A proposal is to use vector-based control algorithms (Vector Control).
The objective is to be able to run motors up to 500W with ruggedness and stability. The feedback mechanism shall be determined on the course of the project. The aim is to have a sensor-less and sensed solutions.
