Brushless DC motors are the most widely used electrical drive in the industry. The development process of the drive is costly and time-consuming. However, various methods can be used to reduce the development time of the drive. This paper presents the Model-Based Design technique of Brushless DC Motor using MATLAB/Simulink with Arduino support block set. The model of BLDC motor is developed using black-box modeling approach; simulations are performed based on real-time data and processed using MATLAB System Identification tool box. The PID Controller is then designed and tuned within the simulations to attain the drive performance. For real-time application, the controller code is generated and uploaded into Arduino Mega embedded controller. The results obtained from simulation and experiment is discussed and compared. The performed works concludes that Model-based design technique can be applied in any control design application using low cost controller such as Arduino embedded controller.
