Rotor commutation using encoder

Emrah Duatepe asked:

Open original thread
Hi guys,
I am trying to commutate BLDC motor using encoder and one revulation is 1024 encoder value.And motor 10 pole pairs,in this case 18 encoder value(60 electrical degree) equals 6 mechanical degree so that when the rotor reached the 18 alteration I have to perform next stage.

For example now rotor in 0. position and rotate encoder 13 value and then rotate CCW -10(1024-13-10= 1001) I can't decice how can I find the right sequence.I can't find a good solution algorithm for it?How people do it right?

What I have tried:

encoderValue = Get_Encoder_Pos();

if(((encoderValue - xEncoderValue) >= 18) && dir==1)
//This doesn't work,If motor rotate CCW from 0 to in this case enc value will increase 1024-1023 .... like that.
