Brushless DC (BLDC) motors are electronically commutated motors that offer many advantages over brushed DC motors and, therefore, are becoming very popular industrially and commercially. This application report discusses a sensored 3-phase BLDC motor control solution using MSP430™ as the motor controller. Hall sensors are used to detect the rotor position and close the commutation loop. Both open loop and closed-loop control implementations are discussed.
