Implementation of a vector controlled induction motor drive

Acar, Akın
High dynamic performance, which is obtained from dc motors, became achievable from induction motors with the recent advances in power semiconductors, digital signal processors and development in control techniques. By using field oriented control, torque and flux of the induction motors can be controlled independently as in dc motors. The control performance of field oriented induction motor drive greatly depends on the correct stator flux estimation. In this thesis voltage model is used for the flux estimation. Stator winding resistance is used in the voltage model. Also leakage inductance, mutual inductance and referred rotor resistance values are used in vector control calculations. Motor control algorithms use motor models, which depend on motor parameters, so motor parameters should be measured accurately. Induction motor parameters may be measured by conventional no load and locked rotor test. However, an intelligent induction motor drive should be capable of identifying motor parameters itself. In this study parameter estimation algorithms are implemented and motor parameters are calculated. Then these parameters are used and rotor flux oriented vector control is implemented. Test results are presented.


Design optimization of variable frequency driven three-phase induction motors
Ertan, B; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Simsir, B; Hamarat, S; Cekic, A; Pirgaip, M (1998-01-01)
An approach to optimize the design of three-phase induction motors for a wide speed range drive is considered. Two operating points in the speed range are taken into consideration. The problem is handled as a constrained optimization problem. An accurate model for the motor in terms of its dimensions has been developed which predicts the motor performance based on about 60 parameters of motor geometry.

Uygur, Serdar; Güran, Hasan Cengiz; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, position and current control systems for a brushless DC (Direct Current) motor are designed and integrated into one FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chip. Experimental results are obtained by driving the brushless DC motors of Control Actuation System of a guided missile. Because of their high performance, brushless DC motors are widely used in Control Actuation Systems of guided missiles. In order to control the motor torque, current controller is designed and implemented in the FPGA. P...

Filci, Tayfun; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2016)
In this thesis, an algorithm will be developed and implemented online for the estimation of rotor position from the rotor slot harmonics in stator currents. Experiments will be done on an inverter driven induction motor hardware, and the performance of the position detection algorithm will be evaluated in comparison with commercial encoder outputs.
Design of a GaN Based Integrated Modular Motor Drive
Uğur, Mesut; Keysan, Ozan (2018-10-25)
In this study, design procedure of an Integrated Modular Motor Drive (IMMD) is presented focusing on high power density. The design is based on a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and GaN FETs. Fractional slot concentrated windings are used on the stator. Slot/pole combination and winding configuration is selected based on having low cogging torque and high winding factor. An extended motor drive inverter topology is proposed where 2-level voltage source inverters are connected both in series and pa...
Experimental investigation of shaft transducerless speed and position control of ac induction and interior permanent magnet motors
Goksu, Omer; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2010-01-01)
In order to drive AC motors with high efficiency and high motion performance, and to provide accurate speed/position control, motor shaft speed and/or position feedback is required. For this purpose, usually transducers (encoder, tachogenerator, resolver, etc.) are installed on the shaft. However, transducers are not preferred in most of the applications since they increase the cost and decrease the reliability of the drive due to their failure prone structure and connections. In such applications, the spee...
