This paper presents the comparison and analysis of different control techniques which are required to run the Brushless Direct Current(BLDC) motor at specified speed. Various BLDC motor speed control techniques have been developed in recent years due to increasing demand leads to further advancements in control techniques. Speed control techniques based on electronic commutation which can be sensor based or sensorless. Methods like Back-EMF, Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) and Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVWM) provided with proportional Integral (PI) controller are implemented in Matlab simulink models. These different control models applied to BLDC motor under different loading conditions. The simulation results shows the speed , torque, voltage and current waveforms of BLDC motor using different control models which are compared and analyzed to evaluate the performance of speed controllers.
