Field Oriented Control (FOC) - A Deep Dive
DC Brush, Brushless DC (BLDC) and step motors are the three most commonly used motor types for positioning and velocity motion control applications. Of these, Brushless DC and step motors are 'multi-phase', meaning they require some type of external coil excitation to keep the motor moving.
This deep dive will examine the most popular motion control techniques, including field-oriented control (FOC), for multi-phase motor control, with an eye toward determining what control techniques work best for positioning and high-speed applications.
