Motor current controller and controlling motor current


A motor current controller operates to: set a reference current value and a decay mode switching time for each pwm cycle based on a positional relationship between a rotor and a stator; switch an h-bridge circuit to the charge mode at the time of start of each pwm cycle; switch the h-bridge circuit to the fast decay mode and store a charge mode time when determined that the motor current is greater than the reference current value; switch the h-bridge circuit to the slow decay mode when the decay mode switching time elapses; compare the charge mode time of the corresponding pwm cycle in a present falling side with the charge mode time of the pwm cycle in a previous falling side; update the decay mode switching time of the pwm cycle previous to the corresponding pwm cycle in a subsequent falling side.. .

Motor current controller and controlling motor current


A motor current controller includes: an h-bridge circuit that includes a switching element and is connected to a motor coil provided in a motor; and a control unit that drives the switching element every pwm cycle and designates an operation mode from among a plurality of modes including a charge mode, in which a motor current flowing in the motor coil increases, and a decay mode, in which the motor current is decreased for the h-bridge circuit. The control unit operates to select the decay mode as the operation mode with higher priority during a period in which the pwm cycle ends after the maximum duty time elapses from the start of each pwm cycle..
