Project description

Stepping motors are the most used electrical machines for low-power positioning. In this study, a estimator is proposed to estimate the load angle, also in more demanding stepping motor applications. The estimated feedback is used to optimize the postion control so that positioning tasks can be done as quickly as possible.
