Abstract : This paper discusses the procedure and steps followed to design and develop an electric hover-board. The design for the mechanical chassis, an approach to calculate the required motor power rating depending on the load, the possibilities of using different motors, methods to control the rotation of the BLDC motor and closed speed control algorithms for BLDC motor are all presented. Design and development of motor driver required to build a hoverboard is also discussed. The development of motor driver includes design of inverter, DC-DC converter, level shifter and fabrication of the PCB. On completion of fabrication, the motor is tested for open loop control and closed loop control using hysteresis.
