  • Design and simulation of a matrix converter-fed scalar controlled synchronous motor drive

    Matrix converter is an ac/ac converter without a dc link. It acts much the same way as a cycloconverter, but with better harmonic profile, large range of output frequency and controllable input displacement factor. A synchronous motor is used in many industrial applications such as cement kilns, mine winders, etc. Although synchronous motors are mostly used for high power applications, the matrix converter can also be used to drive a permanent magnet synchronous motor with suitable modification for medium power applications. The present paper proposes a scalar control scheme for a wound field synchronous motor fed from a matrix converter. The scheme is based on steady state phasor diagram of the synchronous motor, and results in unity motor displacement power factor during operation. A suitable PI controller for closed-loop speed control is designed. Subsequently, a modified V/f scheme which ensures unity power factor (UPF) at high speeds is proposed. The simulation results for the proposed control scheme are verified.

  • Speed and position sensorless permanent magnet synchronous motor drives

    An indirect rotor speed and position sensing technique based on computation for a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive is presented in this paper. New expressions in terms of stator variables for rotor speed and position angle are derived and computed using real data from a laboratory prototype PM motor. The results show that the rotor speed and angle are in close agreement with those obtained from an electro-mechanical sensor. A two- loop PMSM drive system is then simulated using the derived expressions.<<ETX>>

  • Design of concentrated flux synchronous motor to prevent irreversible demagnetization

    IPMSM using rare earth materials utilize various areas with high power density and a wide speed range. However, as these materials can only be found in limited areas and quantities, use of machines with rare earth materials will decrease. To solve this problem, various types of machines have been studied with rare earth free elements. In particular, the ferrite permanent magnet (PM) is used for substituting rare earth elements. However, this PM has disadvantages of residual flux density and coercive force in comparison with rare earth elements. Therefore, a new type design is required to use ferrite PM. In the paper, a concentrated flux synchronous motor using ferrite PM is designed to obtain similar power density compared to the flat type interior PM synchronous motor. However, an instantaneous current in the stating or locked rotor condition may cause a tremendous external demagnetizing field for PM. Therefore, a structure can be considered for preventing the demagnetization of ferrite PM at low temperature. This paper deals with the analysis for preventing irreversible demagnetization characteristics of the motor. Finally, the result and effect is discussed to improve a model applied structure for preventing demagnetization.

  • Robust speed-controlled permanent magnet synchronous motor drive using fuzzy logic controller

    The Permanent Magnet (PM) Synchronous Motor is ideal in the field of the low power high performance servo, since it is controllable and its vigorous performance is excellent. However, the variations of moment inertia, load torque, and motor internal parameters have been a major difficulty to deal with speed control. This paper investigates the fuzzy logic controller based speed control for a vector-controlled PM synchronous motor drive. The fuzzy logic is based on the speed error and change of speed error measured between the actual motor speed and the reference speed. The robust control performance of the fuzzy logic controller is evaluated for various operating conditions using the parameters of a prototype PM synchronous motor and compared to that of conventional PI controller. The design and application of the fuzzy logic controller are considered and discussed.

  • Development of a model for representing dynamic behaviour of synchronous motor variable speed drives

    The paper introduces a compact method for representing synchronous motors connected to a source of variable frequency. The model is based on a three- phase sinusoidal oscillator that represents the components of the magnetomotive force. The whole model is of seventh order and it accurately represents the dynamic behaviour of the motors. Even simulated dynamic behaviour, in which rapid frequency modulation of the voltage source is involved, agrees well with that obtained by experimenting with a laboratory system. One of the advantages of the model is its applicability for permanent magnet motors and permanent magnet brushless DC motors.<<ETX>>

  • Performance of a line-start single-phase permanent-magnet synchronous motor

    There is now widespread experience of three-phase synchronous motors using high-field permanent magnets for rotor excitation and many high-performance designs have been demonstrated in which the magnets are situated in internal slots within the rotor laminations. A cage rotor winding is fitted if asynchronous starting is required. These machines exhibit inverse saliency, with q-axis reactance X/sub q/ greater than d-axis reactance X/sub d/, and with a suitable choice of design parameters can yield near-unity power factor and high efficiency at rated load. This paper reports a study of permanent- magnet q-axis synchronous motors with single-phase supply, with a magnetising view to assessing the potential for achieving high efficiency, low-cost drives for use in HVAC and similar reactance applications.

  • Periodic Carrier Frequency Modulation in Reducing Low-Frequency Electromagnetic Interference of Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor Drive System

    This paper introduces the periodic carrier frequency modulation (PCFM) for permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) drive systems so as to reduce the low-frequency electromagnetic interference (EMI). PMSMs are widely used in many applications and they are usually fed by pulsewidth modulation (PWM) inverters. The EMI of PMSM, which results from the switch of power device, generates undesirable effects on the control system. Therefore, it is of importance to reduce the EMI of PMSM. The common mode (CM) conducted EMI model of the PMSM drive system is constructed to investigate the CM voltage. The simulations and experiments of PMSM fed by the fixed frequency PWM (FFPWM) and PCFM are implemented to analyze the CM conducted EMI. The CM EMI spectra of PMSM fed by the FFPWM and PCFM with different spreading frequency widths are compared to explore the influence of PCFM on the CM conducted EMI. The regular patterns on PCFM in reducing the CM conducted EMI of PMSM drive systems are revealed.

  • Driving a synchronous motor so that it emulates a twin-shaft gas turbine engine

    This paper presents a model-based control method for using a vector controlled synchronous motor to emulate the behaviour of a twin-shaft gas turbine engine as it drives an electric generator supplying power to steady-state and dynamic loads. The aim of this approach is to provide an in-door test-bed for the generator itself, in the absence of the engine that will eventually be used as prime mover. The control method is validated on a much-smaller (benchtop- scale) hardware-in- the-loop (HIL) implementation of the engine emulator system. The motor speed controller tracks the output speed of a simulated real-time engine model in order to generate appropriate voltage and frequency demands for the variable speed inverter that drives the motor. The inertia of the synchronous motor is varied by adding inertial loading to its shaft in order to study the effect of emulating a prime mover with a higher inertia than the emulator motor. Experimental results show that the emulator motor is able to track the engine speed with excellent accuracy when its inertia is lower than the engine model. But, when the emulator motor inertia is higher than the engine model the speed tracking performance of the motor presents a dynamic lag and it requires a larger control effort.

  • Linear matrix inequality-based fuzzy control for interior permanent magnet synchronous motor with integral sliding mode control

    Recently, interior permanent magnet synchronous motor (IPMSM) is widely used in various applications, such as electric vehicles and compressors. It has a high requirement in wide load variations, high speed condition, stability, providing a fast response and most important thing is that it can be applied easily and efficiently. However, the control of IPMSM is more difficult than surface permanent magnet synchronous motor (SPMSM) because its nonlinearity due to the non-zero d-axis current which can be zero in SPSM but not IPMSM. In this paper, the IPMSM is controlled very efficient algorithm by using the combination of linear control and fuzzy control with linear models depending on certain operating points. The H¿ linear matrix inequality (LMI) based integral sliding mode control is also used to ensure the robustness. The membership functions of this paper are easy to be determined and implemented easily.

  • Speed control by sliding mode of synchronous motor

    This paper presents the results of a simulation for synchronous motor speed control using a Direct Torque Control (DTC). This technique was object of a deep study for synchronous motor drives instead of precise closed loop speed control. However, this technique presents some problems such as, high influence of the motor parameters. The sliding mode controller is a model- based approach used to improve the robustness of the control law despite this influence and to illustrate the good performance of this technique.
