This reference design exhibits the suitability and advantages of the Freescale 56F80x and 56F83XX Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) for torque control applications using a 3-phase PMSM motor with an encoder position sensor.
- It can also be adapted to 56F81XX Digital Signal Controllers
- PM synchronous motors are popular in a wide application area
- The PM synchronous motor lacks a commutator and is therefore more reliable than the DC motor
- The PM synchronous motor also has advantages when compared to an AC induction motor
