Three-phase induction AC motors produce mechanical power for almost 80% of industrial applications by providing extremely high efficiency and environmentally rugged characteristics. Effective control of these motors is needed to tackle heavier load problems .
The idea of using built-in computers to control motors without the aid of external equipment is not a new one, but it has taken until now for computers with the level of performance necessary to control motors in real-time to become small and cheap enough for this idea to become reality.
Several different types of electric motors have been developed to address the needs of various manufacturing processes. Lets examine some of the most common types of electric motors and their strengths within the industry.
For many engineers, pulling all the parts together - the controller with embedded or separate algorithms, the drivers, and the MOSFETs - is a multidisciplinary task, and one for which they dont want to "reinvent the wheel."
With the actual equipment, there are various kinds of equipment conditions and driving conditions for electric actuators and cylinders and thus, it is very difficult to explain all the operating conditions.
