I'm looking to design the power stage of a 3 Phase DC Motor Controller for use with the Emrax 268 motor. The maximum input battery voltage would be no higher than 300VDC and the maximum continuous current draw would be 180Amps (with a 360A 2 minute burst capability).
It's listed as a 3 phase sine wave driven motor, but I'm not sure if it needs to be a true sine wave or what waveform would be acceptable to drive it. If it needs to be a true sine wave, then how would I get that from an IGBT or MOSFET controlled output? Additionally, I'm not sure if I should go with IGBTs or MOSFETs. I have a contact at International Rectifier who could get me pretty much anything they make, so cost isn't necessarily a big deal.
This will likely become a part of my senior design project, but I'm a year out from that, so for right now I'm just doing some research and trying to get an idea of what I'll have to do. So any help or general tips when working with motor drives would be helpful!
