But my requirement is 0v to 220 v variable… So plz guide me I m waiting plz sir, Dear Muhammad, the above circuit will enable you to control the motor from 0 to 220V…or at least from 10V to 220V, Thanks swagatam for your good response , I changed mosfet but found not working . And for the present circuit are you using the bridge transistor network or only a single transistor for the motor? having 2n5269 in its output.I used bridge for field. Hi, Im using this circuit for a 12v 1.3A Cooling fan. 220E stands for 220 Ohms. Actually there’s no difference as far speed control is concerned. 4) pin#2 has high resistance so that may not be required but you can add it, there's no harm, 5) more than 200 watts if heatsink is adequate, sir————-thank you a lot————-irf 540—datasheet shows 150 w at 25 celcius temperature———–but in real life almost it is impossible—-to maintain 25c so—-i have to keep 2 irf 540 in parallel——–now there i have some problem—–i tried earlier also with other voltage regulators could not make them parallel—-hogging issue 1 regulator taking more load than other—–———I HAVE BARE PCB–CU CLADED—-I WILL BE ETCHING THE CIRCUIT—AND SOLDER COMPONENTS—-——-CAN YOU PLEASE POST A PICTURE OR DRAWING FOR 2 IRF 540 PARALLEL IN THE SAME CIRCUIT ABOVE IF POSSIBLE PCB BOARD PRINTED DIAGRAM FOR ETCHING ————THANK YOU. But I need it to avoid buzzing sound at low speed. Where do I connect the negative supply from the motor? I want to know ur opinion about the 3 circuit u have including the above and the 1 with 2 ic and the 1 wid a 200 turn coil. i want to make a wireless system to control 2dc motors. It implies that the source will be always 4 or 5V lagging behind the gate voltage and vary up/down with this difference, presenting a varying voltage between 2V and 7V across the motor. (never came) could you please verify for me the value of R4. A very cool and easy DC motor speed controller circuit … 6A4 diode is already connected across motor coil. Part identified as 220E to the right of the blue M, Hi, the blue M in the bottom circuit signifies the MOTOR which is to be controlled. I think PWM based controller can provide sufficient torque at lower rpm. Thanks a lot Swagatam. If you have any circuit related query, you may interact through comments, I'll be most happy to help! ACTUALY i am serching a circuit about microcontroler type driver which can be driven by microcontroller . I made the controller and ran my 220Vdc motor with it successfully. The 556 circuit is powered by 12volts dc I have changed the 1k variable resistor to 10k, 50k, I have also cross checked the circuit many times but still can’t find out why the power reaching th motor is in milli volts. Hi Abhishek, the value of the diode will depend on the motor current, if it is a low current type motor not above 3 amps, then a 1N4007 can be used…..combination of parallel diodes may not work correctly. I'll try to do it soon, once I finish other pending assignments. your idea regarding using the sensor with pin1 of the IC is technically incorrect and inapplicable, so that won't be feasible. The voltage looks definitely well above the specifications of your LeDs and the input supply level, so we can ignore this parameter. Here, we only change the PWM, which decides the ON time and OFF time of the motor very rapidly. works nomally.but actually operation is on 220v.this is the total information about this project.since last month I am following your site. Your email address will not be published. It has to initiate with a thrust. 9V PP3 can be used only for very low current applications, motors will never work with these batts, you should use a bigger battery or many AAA 1.5V cells together, Hi sir, through 9v small motors are perfectly working but the 12v 775 motor (15w)not even move. Bhai ji, if you have a PCB design for it, I will be most grateful to have it. The above conditions initiates the oscillation cycle, making the output change to a logic high.A high output now forces the capacitor to charge via D2. So in that case no need of any driver, the varying PWMs can be directly integrated with any MOSFET for getting the required motor control. I want to use the circuit to dim 6x100w 36v dc LED chips. But the bottom right side has a BC547 with 24v into the collector. Dc motor is 1.5 hp. Last Updated on February 23, 2020 by Swagatam 234 Comments. yes you can directly replace the Vh, Vl for the pot end terminals, and Vw for pot wiper, without any issues. I tried this circuit but in between got stuck because, I am not finding any way to bring 12V dc to IC 555 as my rectified DC is 180V, which I am using for motor, in the board. HI,You may misunderstand me… You know my motor have 18k rpm in no load and about 5k rpm when connected to 4v 3 amp battery and about 10k rpm on 6v 4.5ah battery. I want to connect a 24v /60w motor. That's exactly why the motor initially requires a higher adjustments for the PWM and once the rotation is initiated the armature gains some kinetic energy and now achieving slower speed becomes feasible through narrower PWMs. IRFZ44NMosfet 2. Just make sure the FET is rated to handle 50V 1000 watt, and the 555 IC is supplied with a stepped down 12V through a 7812 IC regulator. Previously l built your Arduino inverter and it works like a charm. When I was testing with smaler motors (.15A to .4A) there was no kicking … for zero to 100% speed control you will have to make the following circuit, the above circuit will not provide 100% control: 4.bp.blogspot.com/-G-E1CvLaU4U/UOfhAH6C0ZI/AAAAAAAACas/nsaEsevlY6k/s1600/reverse%20forward%20dc%20motor%20speed%20controller%20circuit.jpg. If i use a high amps MOSFET for low amps motor will that be an issue …..I'm using IRF 540N, For a 7 amps motor.. using a higher rated mosfet will not harm anything in the circuit. and 40 volt dc for armature. ie Do i need to add 10k before each GATE? Wating your good response with thanks, you will only have to change the mosfet and use everything as given in the diagram, you can try FQP6N70 if your motor current is within 5 amp. The BC547 collector can remain connected to the 12V source, only the positive of the transistor bridge network needs to be associated the +24V supply line. Varying a DC motor velocity may appear to be not so difficult and you may find plenty of circuits for it. The simplest approach to system cooling is to connect a fan to a dc power supply and let it run. Please don't leave me alone here. Thanks Swarajit, I am glad to know it's serving the purpose. The mosfet can be anything…just needs to be rated at least twice to the load rating, if it's higher no issues, but preferably shouldn't be lower. Surely it would be better to use the pot as a potentiometer ? You can try IRF840 for the mosfet. Hi swagatham, I tryed this circuit in bread board,I'm using 12v, 7 amp motor 2nos connected parallel so the load is 14 amps. i realy needs. I made the #2 circuit to drive a 12v 775 DC motor. Full load current may be up to 5 amp. rest will remain as is. In this way you can yourself adjust and optimize the mosfets with the LeDs in order get the prefect match across the selected dimmers. 1) yes you can do that, but first test with a lamp of the same specs for confirming the actions. Procedure of the offered temperature managed fan might be recognized given below: The speed of the DC motor changes as the temperature boosts which can be transformed into a correspondingly rising voltage and utilized between its terminals. Then the motor is running in a pulse mode. 24v for motor. I think,this was the mistake i made in explanation. I have 4 side on the LED bar that I want to dim, the Front will have 6 x 100w LEDs Back, left and right will only have 3 x 300w LEDs. 1.Mosfet heating 2.To get full rpm of motor. My input is 120 volts AC. VR1 is for altering the PWMs and is correctly configured, so it need not be changed, hey guys i am trying to put together something a little different i need to control 12v dc but i need to have and adjustable soft start(start at 30% or 50% ect.) How To Design Simple Power Supply Circuit, Customized CDI Spark Advance/Retard Circuit. n-channel, rated higher than your motor Voltage and Current specs. I meant to say if you are able to control the Arduino by some external means, push button was just an example. I believe one or two components can be altered to increase the difference between highest and lowest speed. Thank you sir! Such a blessing for learners like me. But motor still rotates at speed more than I want even if 100k pot at its minimum setting. In this post we are going to construct a circuit to control the speed of 12V DC fan which is commercially available to run on 12V Solar panels and Batteries. Mosfet was running very well in 12 v 2amp SMPS power supply. 10K Thermistor 3. you can use the mosfet/motor driver configuration that's shown in the article above and integrate it with your available 5V PWM. which mosfet did you use? So visual indication issue solved…..! This LED will correspondingly get brighter as the engine speed increases. Yesterday , I tried with another motor . So I am pretty sure the circuit will not last long and it can be make any damage as its hotting up. In this case use ordinary 555 IC, and not 7555. use IRF540 mosfet and 15amp power supply, this will drive the motor with the specified power. Boost circuit for driving a 12-V fan, using the output from the linear fan-control ADM1028’s DAC. You can probability try the circuit presented in the following article, which has a couple of digital pot ideas: https://www.homemade-circuits.com/digital-potentiometer-circuit-using-ic-2/. The above frequency is responsible for determining the frequency of the PWM. I am planning on using dc-to-dc converters with the following specs: Input voltage:12V-60V Input Current:Maximum input current of 15A Output voltage:12V -80V continuously adjustable Output current:maximum output current of 10A ( adjustable ) Output power:the effective power P = input voltage V * 10A Conversion efficiency:up to 95% ( input voltage, current; output voltage and current impact of conversion efficiency ) Short circuit protection:Fuse Size:85*60mm Quantity:1pc, Specification(20W/30W/50W/100W) Model Type: High Power Integrated Chip lamp Beads Chip size: 24MIL*44MIL Forward Voltage: 30-36V Forward current: 100w(3000mA) Luminous Flux: 90-120LM/W Color-rendering index: 60-85 Beam Angle: 120 degrees Working Temperature: -20 centigrade to 60 centigrade Color Temperature: Warm White: 3000-3200K White: 6000-6500K Lamp Body Material : Pure Copper Bracket Life Span: 100,000 Hours. When the gate voltage is around 7V, the source pin will supply the minimum 2V to the motor causing a very slow spin on the motor, and 7V will be available across the source pin when the pot adjustment generates the full 12V across the gate of the mosfet. Because we use a CMOS IC that can be used with a voltage of 3V to 15V. Hey swagatam , can I use this circuit to power a 3V or 6V DC motor that I will use to drive a small remote controlled(wired) toy? remove the mosfet and the motor from the circuit and connect an LED with a 1K resistor across pin#7 and ground of the IC….now adjust the pot around and see if the LED alters its intensity from zero to max and back….if this is not happening then you could assume something to be not correct in your circuit. the ground connections (symbols) shown in the diagram all needs to be connected together (made common)….in other words the 220V (-) needs to be connected with your 555 IC's 12V (-)…..I hope you have use a 12V DC supply separately for powering the 555 circuit, Dear sir I use this circuit and found wonderful working …nut now today I have a treadmill 220v dc motor so please guide me that this circuit will work properly or not if yes then changing will be required ? With pin #3 at low, C1 yet again begins discharging via D1, and when the voltage across C1 falls below the level that's 1/3 of the supply voltage, pin #3 and pin #7 again become high, causing the cycle to follow and go on repeating. The 100% constant torque would be a better option as it presents more efficient PWM control over the motor, here's the article which are to referring: https://homemade-circuits.com/2011/12/constant-torque-dc-motor-speed.html. Power all the control ckt with the proper DC voltage, but put the FET in series with an AC motor. The maximum speed of the motor is going to be somewhat lower than its calculated requirement. Thanks, Hi George, the negative of 24V for the motor and the negative of the 12V for the circuit must be connected in common otherwise the circuit will not work. Troubleshooting the 556 circuit can be difficult for me, because I am not well versed with the pinouts of 556. I suspect, my 470mfd did the same roll of the 10mfd in this circuit. I found that my motor is stable on this RPM but it getting hot if I it go to more that 5k rpm. connect the motor across the mosfet drain and 77V input. I have more questions which i prefer to writethem in thier related topics. It is strongly recommended that the value of R2 is just about roughly one tenth of the value of R1. 2 dc motors180v,1.9amp. I didn't get 12V AC/DC Adapter but got 15V AC/DC from my nearest shop. 1. PWM Technique is used in Controlling The Speed OF DC … Hello Swag, I used the design#2 to test what i am working on (treadmill motor run using pwm) and find that the voltage of pin 7 is vary between 7.4 ~9 while the pin 3 voltage was from 0.8 to 7.6 by turning pot. Hai, may be it's due to some improper connection inside the motor or the adapter…because if both the motors are running together then they would do the same individually too. The mosfet can be replaced by a power transistor, if desired. 2. In the above design VR1 is a potentiometer and is a part of the IC 555 circuit, it has no relation to a 110V mains supply, only the motor can be associated with a specified DC high voltage. A quick … Notify me via e-mail if anyone answers my comment. I don’t know why. Hope it is correct. And a max of 6 on the other dimmer. Hai, I bought one motor and one 12v 2amp dc adapter. Required fields are marked *. Since the charge and discharge time periods is directly connected with the output duty cycle, it varies according to the adjustment of the pot, giving form to the intended varying PWM pulses at the output. then 3 LEDS on the left side, 3 on the right side and 3 on the back. It is not working when I tune the pot in one place motor start running in full speed and after that not working. Hi, Design #1 is not a good configuration for the pot. The shown PNP transistor is BC557 and not BC547 as wrongly given in the diagram. Connect their emitters together. Could you clarify me. Please refer to link https://plus.google.com/+AbhishekSharmatechperson/posts/a4fZ5tRkS7Y I have use tip 122. However, in recent years, the technology of using these fans has evolved significantly. I connected it directly to the 12v adapter. Hope this helps. like that. These led are going to be use on a harvester operating at 12vdc. The main advantage of these type regulator is cheap, high durable and no humming noise produced in a fan at low speed.. Connecting IRF540 in parallel like? Considering that the collector of Q1 is hooked up to the base of Q2, the voltage at the base of Q2 also replies to the above and diminishes The voltage diminishes at the base of Q2 which turns into saturated more difficult, producing the collector-emitter voltage (VCE) to lower thus increasing the voltage on the collector terminal of the motor. Also please mention where I have to use Pot meter in the circuit, either in R2 or R4 or somewhere else, because I am diploma mechanical engineer hence I not well versed in electrical and electronic circuit. The motor can be connected with the 90V supply directly in the manner shown in the diagram. The utilization of DC fan become … and wat value, rated mosfet I can use for ur above circuit? I want to know what are differences between pwm circuit with one 555 ic and two 555 ic? Sir, what could be cause for this? so can u able to find the reason why the new motor is not spinning continuesly when I connected it separately with the adapter? Hi Ganesh, there are plenty of BLDC driver circuits that you can find online or from this site. May your tribe increase! hi, swagatam bro my teacher gave me your circuit as my semester project, but he add some more thing like mathematical modeling and transfer function of this pwm circuit. You can try the concept explained in the above article and replace the BJTs with appropriately rated mosfets to handle 20 amp. Please confirm if those are adequately rated as per the load. You can easily follow the steps and build one as per your specifications. Can the motor is replaced with AC motor will it run?? you can do one thing, connect an LED across pin#7 and ground, and check its brightness in response to the pot adjustment, if it varies then your IC 555 section is good. Without the 470mfd, I can control speed of motor + and brightness of an LED with 2.2K series resistor across the motor from 0% to 100%……! When not running volt is 330 and zero amps. https://homemade-circuits.com/2012/05/making-adjustable-electromagnet-circuit.html. Anyway, the above configuration helps to enforce a smooth speed control on the motor, and the design could be built quite cheaply. Now I want your help, I hope you seen my motor and which fan I connected (s10.postimg.org/7da0t1c6h/2013_07_16_02_25_04.jpg). Disadvantage – Even at low speed they consume the same power as high speed because resistive wire acts as a load in series with fan. so Could u tell me that wat mosfet i can use for this?? Dear sir,I am a mechanical guy,currently working on an electric vehicle and i want to control the speed of my motor using pedal . The average result of the mark/space ratio gives rise to the PWM output which in turn controls the DC speed of the motor. What would happen if this was used on an AC motor? It means the sum of the resistances encountered by C1 while charging and discharging remains the same no matter how the pot is set, therefore the wavelength of the out put pulse always remains the same. 99 $30.99 … I hope this will help you to understand and optimize your design. Terminal voltage of the armature V. External resistance in armature circuit Ra. 2motor 1.5hp and 1 thats 2hp. I am using MOSFET FQPF 4N60 , 555 IC as driver , at 12 v Dc. Could you use a 50k pot instead with out changing any other components? This does not mean the circuit has problems, it is because the DC motor armature is held between a pair of magnets tightly. https://homemade-circuits.com/2012/01/how-to-build-simple-pwm-controlled-dc.html, Please read the 2nd paragraph above the circuit diagram starting " However only the average DC voltage is finally fed to the cell phone due to the presence of the 10uF…….". This fan speed controller functions by sensing the temperature of the engine and is appropriately useful for the initiating. Accrording to me that I apply only 220 v dc to only mosfet not connect ground and positive through resistor same as traic to 555 power supply . you can do it by implementing the following concepts: https://www.homemade-circuits.com/treadmill-motor-speed-controller-circuit/. [20:57, 9/9/2017] +27 63 773 1688: Hi Swag, These led are going to be use on a harvester operating at 12vdc. My problems started after I connecting the 470mfd to drain and source. I am Sakthivel from tuticorin. you can try connecting two more (4 total) mosfets in parallel in an identical fashion as explained previously and check the response, yes you can do it if the total amp is within the max rating of the mosfet, hi, what power supply and mosfet should i use for a 180 to 220vdc motor, as well as adisplay in the circuit to show the motor rpm. Thank you Sunil, I have replied to your email. Here we can clearly see that the mosfet source pin seems to be "following" the gate and hence the name source follower. First: 4011 Motor DC Speed Control. connect the right side lead with the negative of the circuit. Swagatam Ji, I am really very much thankful to you for your technical support in building circuits . You can restrict the pot highest position to 180V. There are dc motor drivers that do not seem to have pots, which makes it simple to use with an arduino. Hi sir, https://plus.google.com/+AbhishekSharmatechperson/posts/a4fZ5tRkS7Y I have made circuit in link it's working good but speed is not controllable I have tried to adjust the 100k preset many times. what I came up with was to put the sensor between the 555 GND so as to vary the gnd supply to the 555 based on temp. when I connected the new motor directly to the adapter, the motor is 2 seconds spinning, 2 seconds stopped, spinning, stopped,contiues.. Then I tried with another similar motor (Removed the motor from pcb drill machine,Rating:12-18V, 30watts) with the same adapter, the motor is spinning good. You dont perhaps have a circuit for a 4 wire 48v dc fan, or can i just connect pin 7 directly to the yellow PWM controle wire? Let me change the MOFSET. Thank you. and wat resistor i have to connect between the motor and the power supply if I want to connect the motor directly to the 12v power supply?Now I bought another motor which is rated 12v ,0.28A. Earlier when I was doing experiment with smaller motor , it was taking 0.70 amp , when I stopped motor shaft by hand multimeter was showing 0.03 amp . Hi George, yes the the emitters are mistakenly not connected to the ground line. As soon as I release the motor shaft amp reading was 0.70 amp. It will be good if show it in a circuit. Jumper Wires hey swag. When motor is running at full (60) rpm pot is at 100% , if I stop motor shaft by hand , Drain -Source amps will increase or decrease or will be constant ? R/Sir,After long time I am making contact.Sir If there is any Idea about controlling the pwm motor with field and Armature with 220volt supply? want your help. I’m not getting the full speed of the motor. Connect an ammeter in series with the motor wire and you can get the amp consumption on the meter while its running. )I want to switch frequently so If I use the switch on after the MOSFET while the circuit is on continuously I'll control the motor through the output, is that cause any damage to circuit? *motor has low torque and a lever is connected with shaft ,and can be stalled easily by hand at full (60) rpm* Just add this…, Will there b any problem to my motor if the voltage is 180vdc and i rotate the pot to max 220v. yes, 7812 with 15V input is perfectly fine, and making the negatives common along with the fet source is also perfect….I think attaching the diodes across the motor should solve the problem. If we take the example of IRF540, its max current handling capacity (with optimal heatsinking) is around 25 amps, and voltage is 100V. I got a question about transistors T6 and T7 (BC547). mosfet may not be necessary, you can use a TIP122 in its place and connect the motor as indicated (across collector and positive). Unless there’s some kind of automatic compensation involved the torque cannot increase. Coming back to the proposed high torque speed controller circuit design, here we have used two 555 ICs instead of one or rather a single IC 556 that contains two 555 ICs in one package. Hi, 1. The driver works but with two problems: 1. OK, then connect an LED from pin#3 to ground with a 1K resistor in series…and check the illumination by adjusting the pot…. The tach signal indicates whether the fan is running and its rate of speed. When we rotate potentiometer – What we change frequency or width of pulse of Gate. Is it possible to redesign that circuit in such a way that we can do away with the pot? 1.how can i connect this specified motor (180V,1.9A,1/3 Hp DC Motor)with the controlling signal? 1) you can use a dual pot for implementing a simultaneous operation of the two circuit's PWMs, in sync. BT136 triac The speed … How to get full rpm (60) at 12 volt. The proposed circuit is completely free from the above shortcomings and is able to generate and sustain high torque levels even at lowest possible speeds. Hi SwagathamAt last I found an answer for my 470md related problem from your one another circuit. Without pot you can’t adjust the speed, sorry can you please elaborate? the pot control is for speed control, it has no relation with current….use a 2amp fixed current power-supply for getting the required current restriction. However this one looses torque at low speeds. The above circuit was inspired from the following motor driver circuit which was published long back in elecktor electronic India magazine. 1)Motor didn't run when the power on2)When I turned the POT, it started running but immediately 555 got burned and MOFSET as well LM7812 also got hot.3)Even though the smoke was comming from 555 motor was running.4)I checked the circuit and found no short circuit. The voltage at the 48vdc motor connection reads in millivolts. So I asked to you. Hi, it can be used for 24V 3 amp or any other power rating, since the motor supply is isolated from the circuit supply. I believe, I cannot connect LM7812 directly to this volt. This Ac Motor speed controller circuit is working based on the Triac and Diac. one 6A4 get shorted.Then I changed the supply bridge to armature and vice versa.till one diode is shorted.The motor is 1.5 hp @ rating 8amp. 2) you can use a DPDT switch in series with the motors, it won't do any harm to the circuit functioning. you can use 7.5AH batt, it will not harm the motor as long the voltage is correctly matched. Hi Swag. Any idea how is this achieved? The output could be checked by connecting a 40 watt bulb instead of the motor. The motor initially does not respond to the narrow PWMs, rather starts with a jerk after the PWMs are adjusted to significantly higher pulse widths. Can you please guide me how to use it? I plan on using a potentiometer in order to control the speed of the vehicle. I build this Speed controller, it works for small motors like 775, but when l connect to a car radiator fan motor, it blows off probably the if(worked for a few seconds before blowing), any suggestion will be appreciated. This Microcontroller makes the PWM signal for the motor. yes, if the voltage is 100V across the load, and current is 1 amp, then the effective consumption will be approximately 100 watts. As you may witness, although the bulb works perfectly in response to the PWMs and varies its intensity from minimum glow to maximum low, the motor does not. If it does then you can simply add another IRF540 in parallel with the existing one, which will instantly raise the capacity of the system to 50 amps, and so on. also connect a 6amp rectifier diode right across the motor coil in order to safeguard the fet from motor back emfs.. Thanks for the clarification… so the shop man cheated me by giving a damaged motor itseems :-(… Now am having a 12v, 0.28A DC motor. Hi Sunil, I have practically tried the single IC 555 version and the two IC 555 version, and I found the latter having substantially more torque than the single IC version. What mosfet do I need to be able to dim 3 of these LeDs connected in parallel at 36vdc? The IC 555 is easier to understand and can be rectified easily in case of a fault. Ap kase ho Swagatam Ji, Thank you so much for your help to us all. My DC motor is 180V 6Amps. Connect one terminal of the DC motor to the Anode terminal of thyristor and the other terminal to the switch. the circuit is actually providing 0 to 100% PWM output but your motor is not responding at lower PWMs due to lack of torque, you can try connecting the capacitor right across the motor leads and see if that helps, because I cannot see any other possible modification for rectifying this issue in the circuit. The speed is related by the following equation. Sorry I do not have an SCR circuit, I only have a MOSFET based design. i believe that should be 2k ohms. you can use the last circuit from the following link: https://homemade-circuits.com/2013/09/simple-electronic-load-controller-elc.html. New question, I had not added 1N4007 to irf540, so now should I add it and it's not operating 12vdc 775 motor general purpose pcb drill motor, it's 15w. When I connected 12 volt wiper motor (50 rpm)at output , MOSFET become too much hot within 15 sec time , and motor was running at 4rpm. DC motor speed control for a cooling fan occurs by adjusting the supply voltage to the motor. It is possible by replacing the mosfet with a triac. A speed controller will only reduce the RPM from the specified high value to the lower levels. The figure shows how a single 556 IC can be employed for controlling speed of a connected motor, we won’t go into the details, the only notable drawback of this configuration is that the torque is directly proportional to the speed of the motor.
