Texas Instruments: Smaller and Smarter Motor Control Drives for HEV and EV

September 26, 2016 // By Amanda Weise
As the hybrid electric vehicles/electric vehicles (HEV/EV) market begins to increase, the need for efficient and smarter motor-position control becomes more critical. Today more than ever, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are focused on how to enhance the capability of electric motors (for example, torque control), while maintaining a high-level of system visibility via diagnostics to always know the health of the system. To reach these goals, highly-integrated solutions in the motor-position control, especially dealing with motor efficiency and torque control, are essential.
