Bernard Cole-December 01, 2012

In “Implement trapezoidal velocity profiles in software,” Adil Ansari in the General Electric Energy Division, Atlanta, GA, describes how to calculate the trapezoidal velocity profiles needed to provide smooth motion for starting and stopping motor-control systems.

He describes what is needed to implemented the profiles in software so the profiles can be used to provide digital or analog control to a motor.
