The reference frame theory constitutes an essential aspect of electric machine analysis and control. In this study, apart from the conventional applications, it is reported that the reference frame theory approach can successfully be applied to real-time fault diagnosis of electric machinery systems as a powerful toolbox to find the magnitude and phase quantities of fault signatures with good precision as well. The basic idea is to convert the associated fault signature to a dc quantity, followed by the computation of the signal's average in the fault reference frame to filter out the rest of the signal harmonics, i.e., its ac components. As a natural consequence of this, neither a notch filter nor a low-pass filter is required to eliminate fundamental component or noise content. Since the incipient fault mechanisms have been studied for a long time, the motor fault signature frequencies and fault models are very well-known. Therefore, ignoring all other components, the proposed method focuses only on certain fault signatures in the current spectrum depending on the examined motor fault. Broken rotor bar and eccentricity faults are experimentally tested online using a TMS320F2812 digital signal processor (DSP) to prove the effectiveness of the proposed method. In this application, only the readily available drive hardware is used without employing additional components such as analog filters, signal conditioning board, external sensors, etc. As the motor drive processing unit, the DSP is utilized both for motor control and fault detection purposes, providing instantaneous fault information. The proposed algorithm processes the measured data in real time to avoid buffering and large-size memory needed in order to enhance the practicability of this method. Due to the short-time convergence capability of the algorithm, the fault status is updated in each second. The immunity of the algorithm against non-ideal cases such as measurement offset errors and phase unbalance is theoretically and experimentally verified. Being a model-independent fault analyzer, this method can be applied to all multiphase and single-phase motors.


An online sequential algorithm for the estimation of transition probabilities forjump Markov linear systems
Orguner, Umut (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
This paper describes a new method to estimate the transition probabilities associated with a jump Markov linear system. The new algorithm uses stochastic approximation type recursions to minimize the Kullback-Leibler divergence between the likelihood function of the transition probabilities and the true likelihood function. Since the calculation of the likelihood function of the transition probabilities is impossible, an incomplete data paradigm, which has been previously applied to a similar problem for hi...

Sezgin, Volkan; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In vector control of induction motors it is essential to know the parameters of the motor. Known approaches to this problem have some drawbacks. This thesis work is planned to develop solutions to the existing problems. The proposed solutions will be implemented and tested.
An Automatically Mode-Matched MEMS Gyroscope With Wide and Tunable Bandwidth
Sonmezoglu, Soner; Alper, Said Emre; Akın, Tayfun (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-04-01)
This paper presents the architecture and experimental verification of the automatic mode-matching system that uses the phase relationship between the residual quadrature and drive signals in a gyroscope to achieve and maintain matched resonance mode frequencies. The system also allows adjusting the system bandwidth with the aid of the proportional-integral controller parameters of the sense-mode force-feedback controller, independently from the mechanical sensor bandwidth. This paper experimentally examines...
A New Approach to Investigation of the Relationship of VLF Signals by Using Longitudinal Analysis Models
Guzel, E.; Yaşar, M.; Kılıç, M. B.; Canyılmaz, M. (Hindawi Limited, 2013)
Longitudinal analysis models are applied to analyze very low frequency (VLF) electromagnetic waves signals. They are useful in realization of nuance of relationship between parameters of concern which change over time. VLF data are so important for the communication and determining the disturbances in the lower ionosphere. In this study, we used a four-day VLF signal data which come from transmitter stations located at two different countries to Elazi. g receiver system. A very important feature of this dat...
