Develop a motor control software system using independent flap position sensing.
DornerWorks engineers successfully developed a Trapezoidal Control of a BLDC motor using Hall effect sensors for speed and position control. It also used RVDT excitation for flap position sensing that was done in parallel with motor control sensing for independent verification of the flap positioning. We performed requirements development, software architecture (including software prototyping), software implementation, and software verification (high-level and low-level). This included all necessary BIT and communications between controllers and Ground support Equipment. This project demonstrated DornerWorks to effectively move commercial motor control technology into a flight worthy DO-178B system at Design Assurance Level B.
