Title: Industrial implementation of a fuzzy logic controller for brushless DC motor drives using the PicoMotion control framework
Keywords: BLDC motor drives, fuzzy logic control, industrial implementation

Abstract: Modern industry requires an improved motor performance and the permanent magnet brushless DC (BLDC) motors are especially appropriate for applications that require a high level of accuracy and performance. The advanced control strategies when applied into BLDC motor drive systems may further enhance their performance. Fuzzy logic control algorithm has been developed in this investigation and embedded into a commercially available motion control system for the position control of BLDC drives offered by PicoMotion Inc. and Motion Control Framework software platform have been selected for the experiments due to their compactness, flexibility and the open hardware and software concept they have been created upon. The obtained comparative results have confirmed that the implementation of more advanced control strategies on existing hardware and software platforms, nowadays available on the market for the control of BLDC motors, can be practically feasible and can enhance their performance.
