The main drawback of using this Hall Effect sensor is

increases cost, mounting of rotor position sensors and

in the area of position Sensorless BLDC motor drives. With

these Sensorless approach, position sensors will be

eliminated, cost of the system also tend to be reduce and the

overall system reliability will increase.

As a result, in recent years a great attention has

been given to Sensorless control of BLDC motor, that is, Fig. 1: Equivalent circuit of BLDC motor drive with inverter
