Three-phase brushless DC (BLDC) motors can be driven and controlled electronically with three-phase sensorless drivers without the requirement of any additional sensors. Due to their effectiveness, dependability, and compact form, BLDC motors are frequently utilized in a variety of applications, including electric cars, industrial automation, robotics, and consumer electronics.
With traditional BLDC motor control techniques, the motor controller receives feedback from position and speed sensors (such as hall effect sensors or encoders) to detect the position of the rotor and adjust the current accordingly. However, sensorless control techniques strive to do away with the requirement for these extra sensors, lowering system complexity, expense, and possible weak points.
In order to determine the position and speed of the rotor, three-phase sensorless drivers measure the back electromotive force (back EMF) of the motor. The voltage produced in the motor’s windings while the rotor rotates inside the magnetic field produced by the stator is known as the back EMF.
The controller can determine the location of the rotor by examining the features of the back EMF waveforms and then modify the currents in the motor phases accordingly.
To precisely predict the rotor location, the sensorless control procedure frequently uses sophisticated algorithms and signal processing techniques. These methods calculate the zero-crossing points of the back EMF signals, which correspond to particular rotor positions, by analyzing the voltages and currents in the motor phases.
Sensorless control, however, is not without difficulties. To manage varied conditions like startup, high speeds, and load fluctuations, precise algorithms and calibration are needed. The precision of the position estimation can also be impacted by noise and signal distortions.
The Global Three Phase Sensorless Drivers Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Volume shipments of the “TC78B011FTG,” a three-phase brushless DC motor control pre-driver IC, began from Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation. The item is for high-speed motors, such as the blowers and fans used in servers as well as the suction motors in cordless and robotic vacuum cleaners.
The sine-wave driving approach used by TC78B011FTG does not rely on Hall sensor control. This lessens noise and vibration. Additionally, a built-in closed-loop speed control function enables the programming of a thorough speed profile into the IC’s non-volatile memory (NVM), assuring suppression of rotation speed variations caused by variations in load or power supply voltage without the need for an external MCU.
