I'm working on developing a speed controller for a motor that is geared to rotate a mass. Currently, the motor in question has a step voltage applied to it and moves the mass at a relatively slow speed. As it has been explained to me, applying a step voltage to a motor would create a large inductive load due to a high value of dv/dt, but as a novice in motors, I have been unable to find any constitutive relationship defining this rule.
Additionally, if I am attempting to ramp from a slow wind-up speed, to a high operating speed, and finally to a slow wind-down speed - what are some things I should take into consideration when designing the controller for this device.
I am definitely a novice in the field of controller design and am just beginning to learn all of this. I will be using labview.
