K60 3-Phase PMSM Sensorless Vector Control Reference Design



3-phase PMSM Sensorless Vector Control on Kinetis K60 Block Diagram

Technical and Functional Specifications


  • Sensorless vector control of the PMSM
  • Vector control with a speed closed loop
  • The information on the motor shaft position is critical for successful execution of the vector control algorithm
  • Rotation in both directions
  • Advanced position estimation algorithms ensure the position information is known without the need to use the rotor shaft position sensor
  • Application speed range from 0% to 100% of nominal speed (no field weakening)
  • Operation via the user buttons on the Kinetis® K60 Tower board or via FreeMASTER software
  • Easy application parameters settings to different motor with help of MCAT tool
