Component Selection

A project log for DIY Field-Oriented Control ESC

In this project I make my own brushless motor controller to implement several commutation strategies all the way to field-oriented control.

Even though it is many months ago that I wrote the first log in this project, I am a lot closer to my first design than I was then. As presented in the previous post, there are three main methods to control a brushless motor, each one having slightly different needs for the hardware design. Here I will present which components are needed for a BLDC controller, to be able to use all three methods. Read on for part selection and the reasoning behind my choices.
