(This is part one. Part two is here) (Also make sure to check out the updated, ridiculously simple commutation scheme, in the form of an infographic, here) Hey folks, this post is about my approach to building a pretty basic dual brushless motor controller. I'm going to focus on the power section in this post, and as soon as I have time I'll discuss the code/FroBoard side of things in another post. I got started on the power section last night after a copious amount of coffee, and wrapped it up this morning- it's a pretty simple build if you're used to building stuff on perf board. I firmly believe that the best way to learn how something works is to build it yourself- that's how I learned about electric cars, and brushless motor control is no exception. So if you want to learn how brushless motor controllers work, build one! A controller this size is a great place to start if you're just getting involved in brushless motor control- I would definitely recommend starting out with something like this if you plan on building a car-sized controller. In fact, my first brushless controller was essentially half of this
