Study on Control of Brushless DC Motor for Electric Vehicle


Article Preview

To deal with the control problem of brushless DC motor (BLDCM), based on analyzing the work principle of BLDCM, the fuzzy-PID control was studied, and the fuzzy-PID controller of BLDCM was designed. The experimental results show that the fuzzy-PID controller is superior to the PID controller at steady-state tracking error. Additionally, the current and torque undulation of BLDCM were also improved.
