Electric drive platform: Inverter board and motor control


P. Papamanolis

Semester Thesis, FS15 (10426)

With main purpose the development of efficient algorithms for the control of Permanent Mag- net Synchronous Motors (PMSM), the CPES department of IfA, introduced the Electric Drive Testbench project. The project aims to the creation of a universal Testbench, where different control and identification techniques will be tested on PMSM motors of various specifications. The Electric Motors, as well as the Microcontroller Units (MCU) are already defined, and what was missing, was the appropriate Hardware and Software to connect these two separate units. In this project, a printed circuit board (PCB) was designed that consisted of a 3-phase 2-level inverter, along with some additional sub circuits, including a measurement circuit of the 3 output currents and the Input DC Voltage, a Hall sensor drive circuit and a Quadrature Encoder drive circuit. Moreover, configurable libraries in C language were implemented for the used MCU, to interface with the hardware. Finally for both implementations mentioned above, analytic documentation was created for the assistance of future users on the project.
