Nowadays Brushless DC (BLDC) motors are treated as the most popular motors, which are applied widely due to their higher efficiency and excellent torque characteristics. Moreover they are operated with DC supply and without using brushes. But BLDC motor operate with wide speed range and therefore it is required to regulate the speed of DC motor using different advanced techniques. In this work, the fuzzy sliding mode control (FSMC) is employed for controlling the speed of BLDC motor. The proposed method is compared with the conventional Sliding mode control (SMC) and the results are analyzed using MATLAB/ Simulink tool.
