SOURCE 2022 has ended
The mission of the Symposium of University Research and Creative Expression (SOURCE) is to provide a university-wide forum for Central Washington University (CWU) students, encouraging equity, diversity, and inclusivity, representing all disciplines and experience levels, to present their mentored research, scholarship, and creative works in a juried environment that meets professional conference standards and expectations.

The 2022 SOURCE program is hybrid. Pre-recorded virtual talks are colored green and can be watched anytime. Live/in-person sessions with Zoom access can be found in the daily schedule. Thank you for joining us!

Feedback form is now closed.

The brushless DC (BLDC) motor is electronically commutated instead of using brushes. The project monitors the current and speed of a BLDC motor under a load using a National Instruments (NI) CompactRio (cRIO) real-time embedded controller using LabVIEW. LabVIEW is used to program the sensors and motor driver for the BLDC motor using LabVIEW Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) modules. The NI 9502 motor driver module is used to drive and control the BLDC motor in LabVIEW VI (Virtual Instrument). The hall effect current sensor which outputs the current as a voltage, will use a NI 9201 digital voltage input module to display the current in LabVIEW. The project aims to help people understand the functions and operating characteristics of a BLDC motor under a load.
