This paper details and contrasts the different control strategies used in the operation of Brushless motors, which generally refer to Permanent-Magnet Motors. These motors are becoming increasingly popular in industrial applications due to their high-efficiency, fast dynamic response and compact size. Until recently, programming and implementation costs of high-performance control algorithms for these motors have been prohibitive. However, great strides have been made by manufacturers such as Microchip, Freescale, IRetc to facilitate these algorithms in the architecture for their processors. This has brought down the development costs significantly and opened up whole new avenues for Brushless Motors.
