Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Use in Three-Phase BLDC Motor Controllers

Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitor Use in Three-Phase BLDC Motor Controllers

October 11, 2022

Motor Drives

The uses of industrial control systems and robotics are expanding rapidly due to their positive impact on costs and quality. This paper will discuss Aluminum Electrolytic capacitor roles as an output filter capacitor to improve power quality in Brushless DC Motor (BLDC) motor controller & drives. Aluminum Electrolytic capacitors can be used to provide exacting drive voltage to motors. This in turn improves system reliability and performance. The case studied will be a 3-phase, 24V / 30 watt BLDC motor with a rated speed of 4000rpm and rated torque of 0.072 N-m.
