sawickm bought a PICKIT3 so I can program that dang PIC microcontroller! Thank you!!!!! I think I'll start out with V/Hz = CONSTANT approach to control, and then add the field oriented control. AFter that, I'm going to try sensorless field oriented control. It's a new area of research right now, and there are some pretty good research papers coming out of some universities in Asia mostly about it that give results that are as good as using a resolver/encoder. I have been reading about how the AC induction motor works, and I keep working on understanding the park and clarke transformations and inverse transforms so I can get a good feel for what's going on.
