Implementation of a three-phase inverter with trapezoidal control for a BLDC motor with educational purpose

Authors: Sanchez-Martinez, Pablo      (

Abstract: In the context of power loads a wind turbine based on a BLDC motor will be programmed and simulated in PSIM, as well as Power designs and control strategies. A three-phase power inverter for trapezoidal control of a BLDC motor will be developed. Electronic control of the motor is implemented in a MCU and this will simulate the behaviour of a wind turbine using the given input data. The Inverter will protect the motor against an overcurrent. Inverter will be powered by the 48 V DC bus.The three-phase inverter will be designed from a high-frequency MOSFET transistor, the IRF540, and a commercial driver, the IR2110. In order to implement the control unit, a dsPIC30F3010 Microchip microcontroller programmed in CSS will be used. The developed module has an educational purpose and is integrated in a scale size workbench for renewable energies in order to evaluate and test power modules and control strategies on smart grids powered by renewable energies.
