Implementing Field-Oriented Control for a Motor on an FPGA


Engineers are developing high frequency switching power electronics and motor control systems driven by complex algorithms. To implement such algorithms, engineers are considering FPGA/System on Chip (SoC) devices.

In this session you will learn how to deploy motor control algorithms on Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC module from the Trenz Electronic motor development kit with minimal FPGA programming knowledge.  Using a field-oriented control (FOC) algorithm as an example, we will demonstrate HDL code generation for the FPGA fabric of the development kit to drive a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM).


  • Simulate Field Oriented Control (FOC) algorithm for PMSM.
  • Partition the control algorithm in the model between the processor and FPGA.
  • Generate optimized C & HDL code from the Simulink model for the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC module.
  • Automatically deploy the code to both the processor and FPGA.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
