Design and prototyping methods for brushless motors and motor control

  title={Design and prototyping methods for brushless motors and motor control},
  author={S. Colton},
In this report, simple, low-cost design and prototyping methods for custom brushless permanent magnet synchronous motors are explored. Three case-study motors are used to develop, illustrate and validate the methods. Two 500W hub motors are implemented in a direct-drive electric scooter. The third case study, a 10kW axial flux motor, is used to demonstrate the flexibility of the design methods. A variety of ways to predict the motor constant, which relates torque to current and speed to voltage… Expand
Characterization of Small DC Brushed and Brushless Motors
Abstract : Micro brushed and brushless motors of the size typically used on micro-ground vehicles and micro-air vehicles have been found to have very low efficiencies. This lack of efficiency notExpand
A Brushless DC Motor Drive Without a DC Link Capacitor
This study presents a simple model for a brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive operated directly from rectified mains without a DC link capacitor, and results convincingly indicate that the proposed buck converter based model is accurate and can be used as a design tool. Expand
