Abstract: Speed and Voltage sensor-less control requires current measurement that Provides accurate control with low cost, noise and Complexity. Engine current measurement is essential to eliminate torque distortion achieving uniform torque. The most common method of current estimating is inserting sensing resistance in the path of unknown current. This method incurs massive power dissipation in high output current. The resistance depends on temperature changes and tolerance. Using self-tune method is preferred for eliminating bad effect of heat temperature, components tolerance and noise. In this paper, we solve this problem with using filter-based self-tune current measurement. But the sensed current of filter based method is low and can be cut by noise and is not accepted for current control. So we can use combined method to improve SNR.
