Commutation Question

I’m trying to understand the principles behind Odrive’s commutation of a motor.

I’m running Odrive Pro and D6374 motors and wondered what approach is used to commute the motor.

Does the Odrive use 3-phase sinusoidal signals and FOC to reduce cogging?


Yes we use FOC for smooth sinusoidal commutation. Cogging usually refers to the motor’s torque detent that exists even when unpowered. That is somewhat separate from sine/FOC commutation.
