Motors account for a large portion of energy consumption throughout industry and motor failure can have negative business impact in both downtime and maintenance costs. However, motor energy usage can be significantly reduced and failure can be prevented by implementing an Intelligent Motor Control Solution.

This Webcast discusses motor control trends, techniques and the new Fujitsu ARM Cortex-based FM3 family of microcontrollers with integrated features that help optimize motor performance, increase energy efficiency, improve safety and reduce start-up time in user applications.

This a very concise and precise introduction to the motor control and gives comparative view of various control strategies for AC and DC motors. In the slide showing applications , I found the mention of EV missing. The BLDC motors are increasingly being used in Electric Vehicles because of their compact nature, in-wheel construction and simple control algorithm using hall sensors. I believe this is worth adding to the possible application areas. Or is the cost of Fujitsu micro-controller a constraint here?

Thank you for your feedback. Agreed. Fujitsu's Cortex M3(FM3) MCUs are targeted mainly non-automotive applications such as industrial and consumer. Goal of this webcast is to focus on white-goods and industrial control. As you know, Fujitsu has been very popular in Automotive market segment targeting EV using higger performance proprietary FR81 core and Cortex CR4 etc along with right mix of peripherals and automotive grade qaulifications. There will be a separate webcast that focuses on automative applications including EV. Please stay tuned!

This tutorial not only covers the design aspects of Fijitsu ARM processor, but simultaneously covers the fundamentals of AC DC Motor Types, Brushless and Brushed DC Motors, Vector Control, Motor Control Methods. This tutorial helped me a lot understanding fundamentals of motor control using microprocessor.
