  • Simulation Package for a New Sensorless Control Strategy for PM Synchronous Machines and Brushless DC Machines

    A novel control strategy, applicable to Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines (PMSMs) and Brushless DC Machines (BLDCMs), was investigated and modelled by an academic team in collaboration with NEC Electronics Europe GmbH. The company has recently developed a new microcontroller, based on a simple sensorless control principle of PMSMs, which is equally applicable to Brushless DC Machines. The use of the new microcontroller in drive systems was modelled by the research team at the university using a Visual C++ environment and was compared with traditional control methods. Extensive simulations were carried out and the results validated the new control principle, which is simple to implement and cost effective if using the novel NEC Electronics Europe GmbH microcontroller. The performance obtained proves the novel control strategy to be at least as effective as the classical ones, at reduced cost. Typical applications are in the white goods industry.

  • Identification of synchronous machines parameters using genetic algorithm and load rejection test

  • Comparison of Axial Flux PM Synchronous Machines With Different Rotor Back Cores

    Rotor losses of axial flux permanent magnet (PM) synchronous machines with fractional windings depend on stator magneto-motive force (MMF) harmonics. To reduce rotor losses, a soft magnetic composite rotor can be used. This paper focuses on the comparison between two machines with the same soft magnetic composite stator and different rotor cores: one of solid steel and another of soft magnetic composite. The study evidenced the composite rotor improved the power density and the efficiency. Moreover, it highlighted a nonlinear salient-pole operation of the composite rotor machine, mainly connected to spatial harmonics.

  • On considering saturation and cross-coupling effects for copper loss minimization on highly anisotropic synchronous machines

It is shown that state-of-the- art methods for saturation consideration through the absolute inductances fail for these machines A novel method for Maximum Torque per Ampere estimation, which includes the consideration of these effects through the use of differential inductances, is proposed and its effectiveness is shown through Finite Element Analysis.

  • The Method for Reducing Intrinsic Shaft Voltage by Suitable Selection of Pole-Arc Coefficient in Fractional-Slot Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Machines

    This paper presents a method to quickly and accurately deduce the optimal pole-arc coefficient for achieving the maximum suppression of intrinsic shaft voltage in fractional-slot permanent-magnet synchronous machines (FSPMSMs). First, with the aid of the analytical method, not only the pole and slot number combinations which can yield the intrinsic shaft voltage in FSPMSMs but the analytical expression of the intrinsic shaft voltage are derived. Then, the effect of pole-arc coefficient on the intrinsic shaft voltage is investigated, and an optimal pole-arc coefficient which can minimize the intrinsic shaft voltage is calculated. Furthermore, the analytical results are validated by finite element method (FEM) well in 6-pole/9-slot, 8-pole/9-slot, and 8-pole/12-slot FSPMSMs, which indicates that the differences obtained between the optimal pole-arc coefficients by two methods are all less than 10%. In conclusion, considering the rapidity of the analytical method and the precision of the FEM, the analytical method should be used first to deduce an initial value to compress the interval of optimization, then run the calculation iteratively by the FEM to get the exact optimal pole-arc coefficient.
