Motor control device
The present invention relates to a motor control device provided with the function of detecting the rotor position of a synchronous motor in a sensor-less fashion. The motor control device previously stores a current phase β defined by the two parameters that are an induced voltage peak value ep and the subtracted value (θe−θi) obtained by subtracting an induced voltage electrical angle θe from a current electrical angle θi, and based on the actual detected ep, θi, and θe, selects β by referring to the β previously stored, and calculates the rotor position θm by subtracting the selected β from the actual detected θi.
