Make Your Own Sensored ESC

About: Awesome Electronics Tutorials, Projects and How To´s

In this project I will show you how a sensored BLDC Motor from an electric bike works and how we can create our own sensored ESC in order to let it rotate. Let's get started!

Step 1: Watch the Video!

The video gives you all the information you need to create your own sensored ESC. But you can get some additional information in the next steps.

Step 2: Order Your Components!

Step 3: Create the Circuit!

Here you can find the schematic and pictures of my completed circuit. Feel free to use them as a reference.

Step 4: Upload the Code!

Here you can download the code for the sensored ESC. Make sure to upload it before attaching the motor wires.

Step 5: Success!

You did it! You just created your own Sensored ESC!

    What is the power rating that your circuit can handle, because I have a 250W BLDC motor and planning to build an ESC for my motor.

    Great project! although I don't really understand what "TIMER1_COMPB_vect" is intended for...(Lowering Effective Voltage? as you said in the video). More study ahead...
