Abstract

BLDC motors are extensively used in various industries, including CNC machine tools, industrial robots, and electric vehicles. Because of their compact size, high efficiency, high torque-to-power ratios, and low maintenance requirements due to their brushless operation, BLDC motors are the backbone of many industrial automation systems. However, they pose significant challenges when it comes to speed control. In this study, the speed of BLDC motors is controlled by PI-based speed controllers. In the described method, the BLDC motor is commutated using Hall Effect sensors. A proposed approach uses PI to regulate the speed of BLDC motors in an open-loop PWM method. The speed-controlled BLDC motor is analysed using MATLAB/simulink. The hardware of the proposed system is also implemented.
