Pwm motor speed control

Posted on Nov 26, 2012

Speed control is accomplished by pulse width modulating the gates of two MGP20N45 TMOS devices. Therefore, motor speed is proportional to the pulse width of the incoming digital signal, which can be generated by a microprocessor or digital logic. The incoming signal is applied to comparator Ul, then to paralleled inverters U2, U3, and U4 that drive the two TMOS devices, which, in turn, control power applied to the motor armature. Bridge rectifier Dl supplies fullwave power that is filtered by R5 and Cl.
