I'm new to electronics and im doing some research for my professor. I need to know if there are any available plug and play kits to control  3 phase brush-less motors. I need something that is not too over the top, just enough to work. I don't know enough about the subject to build my own board and get the right software or anything like that. I need some kit or a list of items needed to create a kit in which i can control and power a 3 phase brush-less motor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

3 phase motors are generally AC, high voltage, high amperage motors. Is that what you are talking about?

If not, what voltage and current are we talking about?
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

the motor is a 24 volt. This is the link to the information on the motor that i have  http://www.minimotor.ch/minicatalog/pdf/Brushless/BLM2057_EN.pdf     see if that helps you out, it should have everything i could ever need to know about it.

sounds like you are looking for an ESC, check out hobbycity

from there you will just need a large battery, and some way of generating a pwm signal, the same way you would control a servo/

Well I know i don't want an ESC like whats in my rc car. I need something i can plug into a computer and run giving varying torques. speeds and position inputs. I want to do this either using a provided software or using C++ or matlab. I found a kit online   http://www.pmdcorp.com/advanced-motion-control/mc73110.cfm  this seems like it would be perfect for what i need but im not sure, there might be more kits or possibilities out there but this is a start.

To drive a 3 phase motor a ESC is the best way to go. You can most likely control the speed of it through one of your Arduino PWM outputs too.
