3-phase brushless motors are everywhere-- automobiles, industrial devices, plant machinery, and more. Lower maintenance costs and greater reliability are just two reasons why engineers need to understand the advantages of high-performance, precision brushless servomotor control.
This session will demystify Field-Oriented Control (FOC) and show you how this can be implemented on the S12ZVM Mixed-Signal MCU in Freescale’s S12 MagniV portfolio.
You will learn:
  • What’s FOC?
    • Field Oriented Control basics
    • Sensorless control by position estimation using saliency based back-EMF
  • Implementation of FOC on S12ZVM family
    • Key features speeding up the control loop
    • Using high voltage analog modules to save external ICs
