Re: Timers and Three Phase Motors
This is in XC8 forum, so means PIC18..., PIC16... and smaller.
PIC18 with 64 MHz maximum clock frequency and 10 bit PWM resolution, will give PWM period frequency 62.5 kHz.
If higher resolution PWM were to be used, PWM period would be even slower.
Why do you want to use 16 bit PWM for motor control with a 8 bit microcontroller?
Do you really expect to have calculation performance to run regulation algorithms giving 16 bit control in a 8 bit microcontroller, for 3 phase motor control?
PIC24 and DSPIC33 is used for such motor control algorithms for a reason.
16 bit PWM in 8 bit microcontroller, mostly make sense for lighting control, where small PWM steps is needed at low light levels in order to avoid flickering and noticeable intensity steps, and to obtain precise color control.
