AddOhms Episode: Introduction to Brushless DC Motors
Fantastic episode from James the Bald Engineer introducing brushless DC motors – and all the possible ‘alphabet soup’ letters that go along with them, such as BLDC, ESC, UWV, and more!
The first part of the tutorial looks inside of a Brushless DC Motor, or, BLDC. Then I show a discrete transistor circuit that can drive one. Of course, you’ll need a Microcontroller like an Arduino to drive it! Lastly, I briefly talk about an ESC.
