Zeta converter based BLDC motor for industrial applications is proposed in this paper. Speed of the motor is controlled by using the back EMF with hysteresis controller. The proposed method is designed and implemented to attain speed and reduce the input voltage fluctuations. It gives high voltage gain ratio with improved capability. It is a combination of zeta and quadratic boost converter. An improved design is implemented inverter output voltage, and speed of the motor is verified using MATLAB/Simulink.
