A novel approach to detection of some parameters of induction motors

2007-05-05
This paper describes a novel approach for offline stator leakage inductance and online stator resistance estimation that can be used for self-tuning of induction motor drives. The paper briefly describes the theory behind the approach. The proposed methods are experimentally tested on an industrial induction motor and also tested on a washing machine motor designed for variable speed operation. Test results are given and the robustness of the approach is illustrated.

Detection of some parameters of induction motors a proposal and its verification
Özlü Ertan, Hatice Gülçin; Colak, Baris (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...
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...
A Comparative Study on Non-Linear State Estimators Applied to Sensorless AC Drives: MRAS and Kalman Filter
Akin, Bilal; Orguner, Umut; Ersak, Aydin; Ehsani, Mehrdad (2004-11-06)
In this paper, two different nonlinear estimators applied to sensorless AC drives, Kalman Filtering techniques (EKF and UKF) and Model Reference Adaptive System (back emf ans reactive power models), are discussed and compared to each other. Both of the observer types are studied and analyzed both experimentally and theoretically. In order to compare the observers precisely, the observers are tested under the identical conditions.
A unity-power-factor buck-type PWM rectifier for medium/high-power DC motor drive applications
Bilgin, HF; Kose, KN; Zenginobuz, G; Ermiş, Muammer; Nalcaci, E; Cadirci, I; Kose, H (2002-09-01)
This paper describes the application of a single-stage unity-power-factor buck-type pulsewidth modulation (PWM) rectifier to medium- and high-power variable-speed dc motor drives. The advantages of the developed system are low harmonic distortion in ac supply currents (complying with IEEE Std. 519 and IEC 555), nearly unity power factor over a wide operating shaft speed range, and nearly level armature current and voltage waveforms. These properties of output voltage and current quantities of the converter ...
An experimental performance test of a derivative-free non-linear state observer designed for sensorless AC drives
Akın, B; Orguner, Umut; Ersak, Aydın (2004-06-05)
In this paper, a new Kalman Filtering technique, Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) is utilized both experimentally and theoretically as a state estimation tool in field-oriented control (FOC) of sensorless AC drives. Using the advantages of this recent derivative-free nonlinear estimation tool, rotor speed and dq-axis fluxes of an induction motor are estimated only with the sensed stator currents and voltages information. In a previous study, simulations has shown that, UKF, whose several intrinsic properties s...
