Electric Motor Control | How to use RCP to Validate Electric Motors & Power Converters, Part 2

 In part 2 of this series, learn how to deploy and test a field-oriented control (FOC) algorithm with a PMSM motor using Speedgoat® hardware for rapid control prototyping. Explore how to:

- Transition from desktop simulation to real-time testing by adding and configuring Speedgoat I/O driver blocks for PWM generation and quadrature decoding

- Read phase currents with synchronized analog inputs

- Leverage Simulink® dashboard blocks as a graphical user interface to interact with the target computer

- Use the Field Oriented Control Autotuner block from Motor Control Blockset™

- Deploy the algorithm to an FPGA by using HDL Coder™ to increase the achievable sampling frequency
