This paper provides an overview of motor control design considerations, such as control of multiple motors, field-oriented control, power factor correction and sensorless control. It also addresses how today's microcontrollers (MCUs) bring even greater precision, power efficiency and reduced cost to a wide range of applications.
Motor efficiency depends upon power factor
Design How-To 7/2/2009 1 comment
Advances in motor control algorithms and cost-effective electronic components for implementing motor
drives are creating a revolution in virtually every electric motor market. Control of the power factor in an
efficient manner also means less lost energy, both in the motor and drive electronics.
