Hi everyone, I have really stock with this part in my project.
I want to increase the speed of motor as the temperature increasing, therefore I've got idea to use different frequency for different temperature.
I know I have to use CCP1CON ,PR2, T2CON . after initializing the PWM I write: CCPR1L=0; to stop the pwm because I want to activate this pin while the temperature is higher than 30 degree. but while I write CCPR1L=0; the PWM is not generating pulse even while the temperature is higher than 27.

here is my code :

unsigned char speed=50;

CCP1CON = 0b00001100; //PWM Mode
PR2 = 0xFF; //PWM Period Setting//PWM frequecy set as 4.88KHz
T2CON = 0b00000101; //Timer2 On, prescale 4
CCPR1L=0;

else if (temperature>27)
{

CCPR1L=speed;
}

any suggestion?

thanks

yes
but first I need to correct my condition actually the condition is not working properly , I have just downloaded some sample which they used 4 buttons to increase the speed decrease and change the direction, instead of button now I want to use if else condition for temperature, but this program while executed the motor keeping running and after some seconds it will be stop. and then while I delete the // if(speed<255)speed+=1; it does not activated any more, what should I do sir ???
else if (temperature>30)

{
// if(speed<255)speed+=1;
CCPR1L=speed; // INCREMENT THE SPEED OF MOTOR
delay(5000);
}

else if (temperature>35)
{
//if(speed>0)speed-=1;
CCPR1L=speed; // DECREMENT THE SPEED OF MOTOR
delay(5000);

}

Do you mind if I send you whole program by email and you tell me what is the problem with this problem, this problem is actually show the temperature and light in LCD and then for certain temperature and light intensity the fan and lamp will be activated. now my lecture gives me new task to increase the speed of fan according to the increasing temperature.
the submission date its just this Monday

don't use PIC16s anymore but below is some PWM code I wrote some years back for a Microchip Mechatronics board
Mechatronics Demonstration Kit

it used a PIC16F917 - hopefully the comments explain what is going on
Code:
// initialise PWM using Capture Compare PWM Module 2
void PWMinitialise(void)
{
// assume Fosc uses oscillator 8MHz - call systemInitialise() first
TRISD2=0;                // set RD2/CCP2 is output
TRISD7=0;                // set RD7 is output
PR2=0x3f;                // set PR2 to 31.2 kHz PWM (PWM value will be 8 bits)
// Configure Capture Compare PWM Module 2
CCPR2L=0;                // set PWM duty cycle to 0
CCP2CON=0xC;             // set PWM mode
TMR2ON=1;                // Turn on Timer 2 PWM
}

// set PWM duty cycle - value between 0 and 100
void PWMcontrol(int dutyCycle)
{
// get 8 bit value for PWM control at 31.2 kHz PWM
dutyCycle = (int) (dutyCycle * 255L / 100L);             // get 8 bit value
RD7=1;                                                   // switch on motor
// load most significant 6 bits in CCPR2l and least significant two bits in CCP2CON
CCPR2L=dutyCycle >> 2;
CCP2CON = (CCP2CON & 0xF) + ((dutyCycle << 4) & 0x30);   // set bits 4 and 5
}

thanks for replaying. why u say dun use pic16s? can i know the reason?
so how can I activate and deactivate the pwm so
?
