Since the last post regarding my CNC Motor Driver, in my spare time I was continuously working on the MCU board and the software for it.
Two days ago I connected the digital part to the power electronics. It started to work immediately, but unfortunately the rpm measurement was messy.
After some thinking and trying, I realized, that the source square wave has some narrow pulses around the edges, what are messing up my measurement.
The Nuvoton MCU I'm using is able to add some de-bouncing delay to the timer's capture input. Adding this feature looks like solving my problems.
- Test and tune the PID controller
- Try out additional filtering on the power input side
- Try out additional filtering at the motor
- Try out the 5th order filter I designed for the measurement
- Test and write code for the current measurement
- Add voltage measurement solution (circuit and code)
- Add code for power display
- Add code for measuring the control signal from the Linux CNC (this allows the control of the rotational speed from g-code)
- Design a high voltage input 3.3V power supply (actually the 48V input is to much for the regular buck converter chips)
- Design and order (hopefully) the final panel for the whole electronics
- Correct the code for the rotary encoder (it is a little bit problematic today)
- Clean up the code (not modularized enough, many comments missing)
