Traditionally inexpensive analog components are used for the design purposes of Motor drives. The weakness of analog systems is their susceptibility to temperature variations and component aging. Another drawback is the difficulty of upgrading the systems. Digital control structures eliminate drifts and, by using a programmable controller, the upgrades can be easily accomplished by software. The high performance of digital signal controllers allows them to perform high-resolution control and minimize control loop delays. These efficient controls make it possible to reduce torque ripples, harmonics and improve dynamic behavior in all speed ranges. The motor design is optimized due to lower vibrations and lower power losses such as harmonic losses in the rotor . Moreover designers have recognized the opportunity to redesign existing systems to use advanced algorithms. For improved efficiency and torque performance, brushless DC (BLDC) motors require a phase advance circuit. Because of the problem of controlled phase advance in BLDC motor we need digital control methodology instead of conventional analog control for the speed control of PMBLDCM. By applying direct digital control it will substantially increase the effective speed range and facilitates a constant power profile. Here the DSP controller is designed to meet the needs of control-based applications of Brushless DC Motor. BLDC motors are becoming popular in Aerospace applications due to better speed v/s torque characteristics, higher efficiency, and high power to frame size, silent operation and reliability.
