|What Does the P0C5E Code Mean?

The motor resolver is a type of sensor that detects the position of the magnetic poles, which are indispensable for ensuring the highly efficient control of the MG1 and MG2.
The stator of the resolver contains an excitation coil and two detection coils. Because the rotor has an oval shape, the gap between the stator and the rotor changes as the rotor turns. An alternating current with a predetermined frequency flows through the excitation coil, and detection coils S and C output alternating currents in accordance with the position of the sensor rotor.
The HV control ECU detects the absolute position of the rotor in accordance with the phases of detection coils S and C and the height of their waveform. Furthermore, the CPU calculates the amount of change in the position within a predetermined length of time, in order to use the resolver as a speed sensor.
