In this study, improvements for error correction, speed, position, and rotation calculation algorithms have been proposed to be used in resolver to digital conversion (RDC) systems. The proposed open-loop system drives the resolver and uses the output signals of the resolver signal to estimate the real time position, the instant speed, and the rotation count with high resolution and accuracy even at high speeds and noise. The proposed solution implements strong features of both closed and open loop based systems while eliminating their weak points. The improvements proposed is resistant to noise owing to digital FIR filter and data averaging techniques. The implementation used for proof of concept is implemented on a hardware using an FPGA and configurable to be used by any resolver.
