This report presents generic considerations on the control of Brushless Permanent Magnet DC motors using the TMS320C24x. This new family of DSPs enables single chip, cost effective, modular and increased performance solutions for BLDC drives. A complete solution proposal is presented below: control structures, power hardware topology, shaft position sensors, control hardware and remarks on energy conversion efficiency can be found in this document. In addition, this report deals with sensorless algorithms as an alternative to position sensors for speed control.
