Motor Control Class: Lecture 8 - Power Stage Configuration (DevKit MotorGD)

Discussion created by dumitru-daniel.popa Employee on Jun 19, 2017

In this 8th lecture of the motor control course we discuss about power stage (DevKit MotorGD) configuration that involves the configuration and initialization of the MC34GD3000 FET pre-driver via SPI commands and the setup of the FlexPWM peripheral to generate PWM commands to the inverter MOSFETs


Main topics:

    - What is MC34GD3000 FET pre-driver and how it works;

    - FET pre-driver initialization sequece;

    - Power Stage Configuration and Control pins;

    - How to configure the FlexPWM to generate PWM commands and validate the hardware;

    - How to configure the SPI communication;



    - Understand MC34GD3000 role;

    - Understand PWM;

    - Understand SPI communication;

    - Implement and validate models for power stage initialization, configuration and operation;
