Ripple shows up because there’s a 5th harmonic in the motor’s flux linkage (and therefore back-emf). From the perspective of the field-oriented control, these harmonics at the phases show up as AC disturbances on the D/Q voltages. The two current loops will try to squash these disturbances, but it’s ability to do so depends on the current loop bandwidth and the magnitude of the disturbances.
The post goes in-depth about causes and introduces Adaptive Feedforward Cancellation. This is a weird technique which has the seemingly magical property of giving your controller infinite gain at a specific frequency – i.e. it will perfectly track a signal at that frequency, or perfectly reject a disturbance at that frequency.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
