Simplifying BLDC commutation and feedback system
Design How-To  
3/31/2009   Post a comment
In a Brushless DC (BLDC) motor system, an electronic mechanism is required to commutate the system. Unlike a Brush DC motor system, the permanent magnet is located at the Rotor and the windings are located at the Stator. As a result of this setup arrangement, the windings are required to energize in sequence, to enable smooth commutation. For the electronic system to determine which windings to energize, Hall sensor feedback is used to get the current location of the windings with respect to the
