Bulk Capacitance

Bulk capacitance sizing is an important factor in motor drive system design. This sizing is dependent on a variety of factors including:

  • Type of power supply
  • Acceptable supply voltage ripple
  • Parasitic inductance in the power supply wiring
  • Type of motor (brushed DC, brushless DC, stepper)
  • Motor startup current
  • Motor braking method

The inductance between the power supply and motor drive system will limit the rate current can change from the power supply. If the local bulk capacitance is too small, the system will respond to excessive current demands or dumps from the motor with a change in voltage. Size the bulk capacitance to meet acceptable voltage ripple levels.

The data sheet generally provides a recommended value but system-level testing is required to determine the appropriate sized bulk capacitor.
