This paper introduces an encoder calibration system designed to enhance resolution and accuracy in interior permanent magnet synchronous motor (IPMSM) drives, complemented by customized embedded software. The system employs closed-loop control with the IPMSM drive, adjusting encoder resolution via gear ratio modifications. Communication between the human-machine interface (HMI) and the DSP’s internal 28x CPU utilizes a digital RS-422 interface. The embedded software running on the 28x CPU processes real-time data and presents calibration information on the HMI. Firmware integration encompasses external analog/digital converters, comparators, digital communication interfaces, high-accuracy encoders, original encoders, and additional gear ratio adjustments. Computed compensation values are stored in EEPROM. The TMS-320F28335 digital signal processor serves as the central control unit, facilitating encoder signal processing, embedded software execution, HMI operation, and IPMSM drive control. Experimental results confirm the feasibility of the proposed digitization approach, demonstrating its effective application in industrial control systems.
