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.

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.
