MSP430 Brushless DC Motor ESC

04/05/2013 Category: Control, Motor

The aim of the project is to build Electronic speed control (ESC) booster pack for the MSP430 LaunchPad named as BLDC Booster. It allows for sensored or sensorless control of a brushless DC motor. Project scheme for sensorless commutation is using BEMF integration and flux thresholding based on the theory of operation for TI’s InstaSpin technology.
