I bought PMSM motor control toolkit , why the motor inside the box is a BLDC motor

Hi, All,

I bought a TMDS1MTRPFCKIT development board several days ago and got it yesterday.  It is surprising that the motor inside is a BLDC motor. Does anyone has the similar problems?

 

Thanks

 

 

  • what were you expecting?

    The motor is sinusoidally wound, but includes hall sensors (if you require them).  You can call this motor BLDC or PMSM.

    Ok, thanks, I am expecting a PMSM, if no one tells me it is sinusoidally wound, how would I know it is PMSM~, anyway, thanks for reply

  • In reply to Yun She:

    There are very few true BLDC motors with actual trapezoidal windings, and there is a lot of mis-use / confusion of the terms BLDC/PMSM/SPM etc.

     

    If you do want know what kind of motor you have, hook the windings up to a scope and give it a spin.
