AC drive control typically connects to the power stage implementing open/closed-loop vector control to manage the torque/speed of the AC motor. PWM generation and optional position sensing are required to achieve high dynamic performance and efficiency, real-time control with low latency current, and voltage sampling. To synchronize to a PLC in real-time, there are multiple standard industrial networks, such as industrial Ethernet, which can be chosen. The control module typically requires complex power management with multiple power rails and different requirements. TI reference designs and solutions help solve these system design challenges.
