MCUs Simplify Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Motor Control Designs
Electric vehicles require safe, cost-effective and high- capacity energy storage systems. Efficient software algorithms, powerful microcontrollers and highly efficient electric motors can make maximum use of available energy. The MB91580 series of high performance microcontrollers offers significant advantages by reducing system cost, offering higher levels of integration, and improving system efficiency. This paper offers a brief description of how HEV and EV motors function and explains how control algorithms and strong peripherals work together to achieve optimal motor performance. It also focuses on the reasons why motor control MCUs such as the MB91580 series simplify system architecture and how to apply them to maximum effect.
