Chapter 8. Real-Time Control of Electrical Machines

This chapter introduces real-time control of selected electrical machines using LabVIEW programming and custom-built hardware. The real-time control of electrical machines requires a significant amount of processing power. However, this chapter aims to provide fully functional LabVIEW user interfaces and primarily targets limited power data acquisition hardware available from National Instruments.

Custom-built hardware significantly reduces the need for processing power of the data acquisition (DAQ) card. The details of the hardware are all included in the Appendix for potential developers.

Five distinct real-time motor control concepts are covered in the chapter: dc motor control, stepper motor ...
