Detection of some parameters of induction motors a proposal and its verification

2007-11-30
This paper describes a novel approach for offline stator leakage inductance estimation method that can be used for self-tuning of induction motor drives. The paper briefly describes the theory behind the approach. The proposed method is based on applying a DC voltage to the motor windings and measuring the DC current that flows in the circuit over a short interval of time. The measured variables are DC quantities and relatively noise free as compared to some other available methods. The proposed approach is tested on three industrial induction motors. It is shown that the prediction accuracy is very good. However, it is noted that some means of filtering the prediction fluctuations in the measurement is desirable. An on-line stator resistance prediction method is also introduced in the paper. This method requires very little computation effort as most of the variables requires for the calculations are already done within a sensorless vector control implementation. When this approach is tested on three industrial motors its estimation results are found to be very accurate.

Prediction of motor speed for low cost induction motor drives
Özlü Ertan, Hatice Gülçin (2006-05-19)
In this paper speed estimation methods for low cost, variable frequency induction motor drives are investigated. Such methods are required to minimize the computational effort and show little parameter dependence. Existing methods have limitations regarding the speed range or are applicable only if the motor size is such that certain requirements are met. Two methods described in the literature are considered. Three new methods of speed estimation are developed to improve their performance. The model used f...

Determination of rotor slot number of an induction motor using an external search coil
Keysan, Ozan; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent (null; 2009-12-01)
This paper describes determination of the number rotor slots of an induction motor from the induced emf in an external search coil. This information is needed in prediction of motor speed from the external search coil induced voltage. The approach is based on identifying saliency harmonics and rotor slot harmonics, via FFT analysis of the external search coil emf. The proposed approach is tested on an induction motor driven by the mains supply. The experiments are repeated with a PWM supply. It is shown tha...

This paper presents a compact model for threshold self-compensated rectifiers that can be used to optimize circuit parameters early in the design phase instead of time-consuming transient simulations. A design procedure is presented for finding the optimum aspect ratio of transistors used in the converter and number of rectifying stages to achieve the maximum power conversion efficiency. In the presented analysis, the relation between the power conversion efficiency and the load current over the variation o...
