Two low-cost CMOS ICs manage a 12 VDC, current-limited speed control circuit for DC brush motors. The circuit design (see Figure 1) uses PWM (pulse width modulation) to chop the effective input voltage to the motor. Use of CMOS devices gives the benefits of low power, minimal heat and improved...

Often, there may arise the need to apply an AC PWM drive1 to input voltages such as 200, 208, 380, 415 and possibly other levels, as well as input frequencies such as 50 Hz. The AC PWM regulator utilizes a switching power supply for control power that is sourced from a DC bus. This gives the unit...

...magnitude voltage pulses. All PWM drives contain an input converter, dc bus, and output inverter. For simplicity, only one phase of input and output are shown for a 3-phase drive. Selecting the right drive is essential to getting the best performance and efficiency from an electric motor. A motor...

The current thinking in motion control these days is . Computer generated movement routines, encoder feedback, PWM amplifiers, stepper motors, etc. Digital technology has brought many good things to motion control. But sometimes the old ways are better.

...on or completely off. This efficient control methodology affords a very wide speed control range (typically 10% to 100% of full speed) because the fan motor is exposed to its full-rated voltage during the active portion of the PWM cycle.
