CAUTION: This equipment operates at high voltages and currents which can result in hazardous electrical shock. Please make sure you understand and follow all necessary safety precautions prior to purchasing and operating.

TMDSHVMTRPFCKIT is a DIMM100 controlCARD based motherboard evaluation module.  The High Voltage Motor Control and PFC Developer’s Kit provides a great reference platform to learn and experiment with digital control of high voltage motors with Texas Instruments’ C2000™ 32-bit microcontroller family. This kit is a superb, all-around motor inverter design tool, showcasing control of the most common types of high voltage, three phase motors—including AC induction (ACI), brushless DC (BLDC), and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM). Digital motor control methods are demonstrated, including trapezoidal, variable frequency (V/F), and field oriented control (FOC), using sensored or sensorless back-EMF techniques. Users learn design and digital control of a full inverter design from AC input—with Power Factor Correction (PFC)—all the way through the motor drive stages and motor control.

  • 85-132 VAC / 170-250 VAC input
  • Isolated CAN communications interface
  • Isolated UART communications interface
  • Isolated USB JTAG emulation
  • Four PWM DACs for observation and debug of system variables through an oscilloscope
  • Over-current protection for PFC stages and inverter stage via MCU PWM trip functionality
  • Includes the following controlCARDs


Software Features

  • Free download of Code Composer Studio IDE
  • Free download of controlSUITE
    • Includes full software source for all motor and control types, example projects, and hardware design files
    • Library for latest software observer (eSMO) and high frequency injection initial position detection techniques are also available


Get Started

  • Install controlSUITE
  • Launch controlSUITE and navigate the left-hand menu to Development Tools > Motor > High Voltage Motor Control and PFC Developer’s Kit v2.1 > Documentation > Quick Start Guide CCSv5, and follow the instructions in the guide.
  • Use your own motors or recommended versions sold by TI
  • MathWorks Support
    • Learn more about MathWorks support for the High Voltage Motor Control and PFC Developer’s kit.
  • PSIM® Companion Simulations
    • The High Voltage Motor Control and PFC Developer’s kit has been modelled in PSIM®. These companion examples implement FOC or trapezoidal control in with either a sensored or sensorless algorithm that match the controlSUITE projects. Embedded code can be auto-generated from the schematic and imported directly into CCS.
