I have a 900kv motor (Scorpion HK-3014-900KV) tracking a velocity setpoint in sensorless mode using v3.5 of the ODrive hardware. I have release v0.4.1 of the firmware that I have added to ability to set the pm_flux_linkage Post. The motor spins up and regulates velocity great until I get to a high enough requested velocity (around 3000 rad/s electrical). The motor then begins to shutter as if it is bouncing off a limit or going unstable. When the motor shutters both the resistor and motor start to get warm/hot. If I keep increasing velocity the driver eventual shuts down with an error code 0x31:
I have tried replacing my 24V 10 A power supply with a LiPo battery, setting the brake resistance to zero so that the battery is the sink for braking, increasing the current_lim, and tuning the velocity controller. I think the instability may be coming from the current controller and I was going to decrease the gains to see if there is any improvement. I wanted to get a second pair of eyes on my setup to make sure I have not missed anything obvious, or if there are any additional suggestions.
Below is a print out of the axis state after a failure resulting in an error code of 0x31.
