DC Motor Speed Regulation with A PWM Feed Back System

Basic PWM
One of the easiest ways of generating an analog voltage from a digital value is by pulse-width modulation ( PWM ). I PWM a high frequency square wave is generated as a digital output. For example, a port bit continuously swiched on and off at a reltive high frequency. The signal is fed to a low pass filter. The voltage at the otuput of filter is equal to ther Roo Mean Squeare ( RMS ) of the squeare wave signal. The RMS of the square wave signal may then be varied by changing the duty cycle of the signal. A cycle is initiated by a low to high transition of the signal and terminates at the next such transition. During one cycle if the time the signal stays high is equal to the time the signal stays low, then the duty cycle is said to be 50 percent.

Figure 1. Duty Cycle 30 %

The following circuit shows a DAC constructed with PWM. The Program controls the speed of a DC motor by pulse widht modulation ( PWM ). Bit P3.0 Drives a switching transistor as shown in the circuit diagram. Motor is swiched on for a period of time, and then off. The fraction of time the motor is on is call the duty cycle.

Figure 2. Pulse widht modulation to Control Motor Speed


This program uses a byte to store the time the motor is on, that is the number of cycles out of 256 cycles while the motor is on. a value of 10 means that the motor is on 10 cycles and off 246 cycles.The duty cycle value is stored in the internal register labeled dCycle. The complement of the duty cycle is similarly stored in register labeled dCycleC. ( Download File : motor.zip )
