PWM motor speed controller

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

This circuit is designed as per a request made by Mr Vinoth from India. His requirement was a 12V/5A DC fan motor controller. I think this circuit is sufficient for this purpose. Quad 2 input Schmitt trigger IC CD4093 is the heart of this circuit. Out of the four Schmitt triggers inside the 4093, U1a is wired as an oscillator with adjustable duty

cycle. The U1b, U1c, U1d buffers the output of the oscillator to drive the switching MOSFET Q1. The MOSFET drives the DC motor according to the switching pulse obtained from the oscillator. When R1 is varied the duty cycle varies and so do the speed of the motor. Diode D3 acts as a freewheeling diode.
