dSPACE has released the XSG AC Motor Control Library software for developing control systems for electric drives. The library enables engineers to program field programmable gate arrays (FPGA) for use in control tasks with dSPACE MicroAutoBox II and SCALEXIO systems, as well as modular dSPACE hardware.
By moving control loops onto reconfigurable hardware, engineers can achieve execution speed of more than 100 kHz and develop dynamic electric drive systems for applications demanding precise position and speed, the company says. The library addresses these requirements with capabilities for evaluation of various types of position sensors, including encoders, resolvers, etc., and flexible generation of pulse width modulation (PWM) signals. Developers can combine library components using the dSPACE RTI FPGA Programming Blockset software.
