Motor Control

Modern industrial and consumer motor applications are dominated by 3-phase AC Induction Motors (ACIMs), Brushless DC (BLDC) motors and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSMs). These types of motors require intelligent controllers running complex control algorithms like V/Hz, block commutation and Field-Oriented Control (FOC) to generate signals for an efficient and responsive motor drive.

MPLAB® Harmony v3 provides software building blocks that include peripheral libraries, application libraries and fully functional demo examples for intelligent motor control. These demo examples are pre-configured to run on our various motor control development boards to make it easy prototyping your motor drive applications.
