Is it possible to run a stepper motor with a closed loop 3-phase controller? What i have seen is, that some people short A- with B-, so that it is tranformed into a 2 coil 3 phase system. So i tried this myself with a field oriented control inverter with absolute position sensing, but I had no success yet. If this is possible, what would be the number of pole pairs for a normal 1.8°/step stepper motor?
This is what I found here (http://ijcsiet.com/pdf/01082014-026.pdf):
