Abstract: In this paper, sensor-less control of Brushless DC (BLDC) motor drive fed from Landsman Converter (LC) powered from photovoltaic (PV) is designed to improve the performance of the motor. For obtaining the torque ripple minimization and accurate speed control using simplified Indirect Field Oriented Control (IFOC) is applied to the motor with Back-EMF estimation method. It is used for estimation of speed in sensor-less approach and implements to tracks the continuous changes of speed. This estimated speed is used to initiate the rotor position, and hall commutation signals predicted from the rotor angle. The performance of sensor less BLDC motor with low voltage operation which expresses high efficiency at low cost and reduction in torque ripple are verified using MATLAB/Simulink.
